Native Trees and Shrubs:
We are dedicated to promoting biodiverse native ecosystems and therefore offer hundreds of native species for your planting projects.
American Native Plants stocks a wide selection of trees and shrubs grown as tubelings. Our woody seeds are planted and grown in Anderson Band Pots that measure 2.5” x 2.5” x 5” deep. Tubelings are sold individually or in flats of 36. Depending on the conditions of the planting site, trees and shrubs as tubelings can have a significantly higher survivability rate than bareroot plants thanks to their young and healthy root systems fully encased in the media that surrounded them since germination from seed. Tubelings are also very easy to transport and plant.
Containers #1, #2, #3, #5, and #7
Our native trees and native shrubs are available in containers for easy transport and planting convenience. Trees transported in containers that are removed upon planting have well-established root systems which will minimize transplant shock usually associated with bareroot plants. As a general rule, the bigger the container number, the larger the size of the tree or shrub. We offer native trees in containers #1, #2, #3, #5, and #7 (select species in #10 and #15).
- #1 pots, 6 1/2” diameter, 7” tall
- #2 pots, 8 ¾” diameter, 8 ½” tall
- #3 pots, 11” diameter, 9 5/8” tall
- #5 pots, 10 ¾” diameter, 11” tall
- #7 pots, 14” diameter, 11 ½” tall
The final volume and height of your container and tree is determined seasonally and by species.
Whether you are looking for mature plants to fill out your landscaping job or need a large quantity of a specific native plant, we offer contract growing to our business clients throughout the year. This is the most effective way to insure availability of plants when you need them.
We are a one-stop shop for all of your native plant restoration, reforestation, wetland and landscaping needs. In addition to our native trees, shrubs, and herbaceous plants, we offer various high-quality hardgoods for your convenience.
Environmental Protective Signage
Looking to integrate environmental protective signage into your restoration or landscaping project? We offer a variety of signage options such as plastic screen printed signs to help protect sensitive or newly planted areas. Aluminum materials and custom designs are available upon request.
The native plants we provide are all high-quality and ready to grow at your planting site, but some may require extra protection to flourish. Our 4 ft. tall by 6” diameter mesh shelters offer good protection from deer browse. These shelters are photodegradable and come separately or as a kit complete with wood stake and cable ties for support. Small rodents will not find shelter within the mesh so they remain exposed to predators. The shelters can be cut with scissors as needed if the height needs to be shortened for any reason or if you need to wrap them around more stocky plants.
Mulch discs are a cost-effective way to protect your new native trees, native shrubs, and native plants. They are constructed from durable coir (coconut) fibers and fit easily around the base of your plant. They last for multiple years and allow water, air, and nutrients to slip right through while suppressing the germination of weed seeds. Our mulch discs are available in a variety of diameters and can easily and affordably replace traditional mulching products by reducing labor costs significantly, especially on sites with difficult access or terrain.
