At Maine Tree Growers we grow a variety of conifers for landscaping

We grow all our trees in the mineral rich, well-drained soil of Thorndike, Maine in hardiness zone 5a. By carefully planting the seedlings, fertilizing as needed, and shaping the growing tree, we strive to grow healthy trees with a full but natural appearance. We are a great resource for those who are looking to purchases trees and who are able to plant them or arrange to have them planted – from landscapers and contractors to industrious property owners – especially if you can pick them up in Thorndike. We will load the trees and give you planting advice.


We are working toward our goal of building a supply of most native conifers plus a few particularly nice non-native trees. If you are interested in purchasing any of our trees, review the 2023 Fall inventory and give us a call at (207) 568 3637 for availability and pricing, or use the contact feature of our website. Trees will become available after we start digging in early Septmeber this year and we are usually able to continue digging for abut 4 weeks.


We are beginning to grow a variety of native shrubs that will be sold in containers, including high bush cranberry, ninebark, button bush, shadbush serviceberry, arrowwood, nannyberry, winterberry, alternate leaf dogwood, and grey dogwood. If you have any questions, call Bill at (207) 930-5649. We have started to plant some shade tree seedlings, including red and sugar maple, red, white bur and swamp white oak, and others. Finally, we have begun to grow some balsam and fraser fir in in-ground bags, which will be dug, placed in a plastic pot, to be sold as live 5’ Christmas trees. The shade trees and Christmas trees won’t be ready for a few years
