Greater Madison's Source for Natives and Specialty Trees and Shrubs

Plants with Purpose:

Proceeds from our online non-profit tree sales have gifted and established over 1100 additional living trees in Cambridge since 2006.

Plants delivered to your door (rates available by request) or schedule convenient curbside pickup in downtown Cambridge seven days weekly from 8am-8pm.


Our stock is sized to readily fit into sedans and SUVs but large enough to provide immediate landscape impact.


Choose plants with proven local performance based on extensive research of over 1300 trees planted throughout Cambridge over the past 18 years.


Questions about how to select, plant, or care for your trees? With over 18 years of urban forestry experience, we can help!

- We offer the highest-grade nursery stock sourced from several of America's premiere landscape nurseries. All trees have northern provenance, assuring their hardiness in southern Wisconsin. 


- Our trees have well developed root systems and are graded to include side branching whenever possible. Trees without side branching are noted as 'seedlings' in our plant descriptions.

- Our plant's branches are professionally pruned to assure the best possible start to life in your yard. Our bare root plant's roots are also professionally pruned for optimal structure.



- For easiest lifting, transport, and planting, we only offer bare root and container-based trees and shrubs:

- Nearly all of our container stock is grown using 'root pruning' propagation, a process that encourages development of dense, fibrous root systems. These plants begin growing the first year they're planted and grow more quickly than conventionally propagated material.



- We guaranty our trees and shrubs will leaf out by June 1 of the year they are purchased.


- Claims must be made by June 15 of the year purchased.


- Trees and shrubs must be planted in accordance with instructions provided when purchased: roots cannot dry out; water immediately when planted; mulch with organic material and water weekly if it doesn't rain.


- A replacement will be offered if your plant doesn't leaf out by June 1. If we don't have the same plant in stock your purchase price will be refunded.


- Replacement trees must be picked up in Cambridge.


- Evergreens are sold as is.


- Trees purchased after June 1 are sold as is.


- Our liability is limited to purchase price of the item being replaced. Purchaser acknowledges this when ordering.
