Evergreen trees

So I was going to buy some evergreens this year from Howard nursery for some thermal cover. Since they are not taking orders this year any advice on where to buy some seedlings. Thank you in advance

I haven't ordered from them, but I think several people on here order from Missouri.

Check with your county. Armstrong County has their own seedling sale that I buy just about every year. They won't ship though.

I plan to pick up some from my local soil and water conservation district. They are more expensive but also larger stock than the PGC sells. I'll probably only buy a few dozen vs 100-300 when buying from the PGC.

I have bought ever greens from Musser's befor, but not for several years. Very good stock.

I have purchased from Pine Grove nursery and been very happy with their stock. I have 100 of their norway spruce seedlings coming this spring to add to the 250 I have already planted from them.

We have had good luck with the Virginia Department of Forestry seedlings when others in the area did not have what we were looking for.

I am one who buys from MDC most every year. Hard to beat, IMO. Lots of stuff sold out there already for the year, but it looks like they still have Norway Spruce, White Pine, and Pitch Loblolly.
