About The Event
Join FNLT supporters for this special insight into the unique landscape and operations of Heartwood Nursery, preserved by owner Sue Hunter in 2013. In addition to the existing mature hardwoods tract, a large percentage of the property has been reforested with native species indigenous to the area. This is a great chance to learn about native species that can be added to your home property - regardless of the size - for beauty and the environement. Throughout the property, there are display gardens of varied species, and stormwater management areas have been created to reduce rainwater runoff and soil erosion. Pollinator meadows have been created to increase habitat for birds, pollinating insects, bats and wildlife. Focal points within the reforested area include a mature grove of over 125 Serviceberry (Amelanchier canadensis) trees and collections of large, uncommon specimen trees and shrubs, most notably Hollies.
Specializing in American Holly (Ilex opaca and other Ilex species) production, Heartwood is proud to be an Official Holly Arboreta and Test Center registered with the Holly Society of America.
Propagators of Nursery stock since 1988, Heartwood focuses on native trees, shrubs, perennials and a few select non-native species. We are wholesale to the trade and also have a retail store open to the public Mondays through Saturdays 9am to 4pm.
We hope you can join us for this special tour!
