Musser Forests in PA - source for trees and native plants

Musser Forests begins fall shipping on Sept 15th and it continues to Nov 30. This is the BEST time of year to plant trees and shrubs so their winter root growth has an entire season to help them become established.


Here's a link to the Musser catalog and website http://www.musserforests.com/

Known for their bare root trees and native plants, Musser has been in business for 85 years.

On the left side of the site's main page, there are links: Plant Index, Plant by Use and Plant by Variety.

The Plant by Use link goes to this menu (below) which is incredibly thorough and helpful to any gardener or landscaper whether or not you want to purchase trees to be shipped!
