Trees and Shrubs from Musser Forests, Inc.

Potting and planting projects continue at the farm with a group of beautiful evergreen specimens.

The outdoor grounds crew worked hard to plant hundreds of trees that arrived - most recently, Colorado blue spruce trees, white spruce trees, Norway spruce trees, and Serbian spruce trees. I also ordered Osage orange trees, two varieties of boxwood, rhododendrons, and some pachysandra ground covers. They all came from Musser Forests, Inc., a Pennsylvania-based company specializing in conifer and hardwood seedlings and transplants. The bare-root trees were potted temporarily, so their root systems can develop. The boxwood shrubs were planted directly into the ground in a field down by my vegetable garden.
