The forest service is selling hardwoods in quantities as low as 10 and conifers in quantities as low as 50.

For customers wishing to purchase larger orders, the nursery also sells tree seedlings by the hundreds and thousands. The nurseries also have a variety of Fraser products available from 1-year-old plugs ready to go into the field.

The Forest Service’s nurseries in Goldsboro and Crossnore have a large catalog of tree seedlings. Landowners can find information about the types of tree species, quantities and costs on the inside page of the catalog.

Each tree description includes information about ideal planting locations and whether a species is typically used for the benefit of wildlife, restoring habitats or as marketable timber.

Catalogs are available at local Forest Service offices, which are located in all 100 North Carolina counties.

The catalog is also available online at ncforestservice.gov by clicking on the “Tree Seedlings & Nursery Program” link.
