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

We have begun digging trees for the Spring 2020 season and will continue for the next few weeks. For those of you who think you need to plant a 10’ tree to get instant height for your screen or specimen, you should consider purchasing the smaller tree. It is our experience that the 4, 5, or 6’ foot tree is more likely to take off and grow aggressively than the larger tree. Additionally, it is more easily handled, and the hole that must be dug is smaller. Whether you are a contractor who needs 20 or 30 trees, or a do it yourselfer looking for something to do around the house during this time of social distancing and want a tree or two, review our inventory, order some trees, drive your pick-up or trailer here in Thorndike, and pick them up. We’ll load them and give you some advice on planting and caring for them.

We grow all of our trees here 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 purchase trees this spring and are able to plant them or arrange for planting - from landscapers to industrious land owners - especially if you can pick them up in Thorndike. For those unable to pick them up, we are able to deliver, but the practicality of delivery is dependent on number of trees ordered and distance. We are working toward our goal of building a supply of most all native conifers (except the few, like white cedar, that the deer prevent us from growing successfully) but for now are limited to what is in our Spring inventory.

Because we do not hold trees above ground for lengthy periods, we offer them for sale during the spring digging season which varies each year but usually lasts from late April through the middle of May. You can contact us by calling Greg at 568-3637 or by using the contact feature of this website. You can see our Spring 2020 inventory here.
