Oak Nursery has been propagating and growing
over 80 species of native shade trees and native flowering shrubs
since 1995. W.O.N. grows the majority of woody species that are native
to the northeastern United States plus the best ornamental trees from
around the world. This choice of species allows you to design complete
landscapes entirely with native plants but also to establish complete plant communities that benefit native wildlife.
Plants in our landscapes should serve a dual purpose.
Plants should not only delight and beautify our lives and yards
but they should also serve their age-old function of providing food
and shelter for native wildlife. Only native flora can provide
the essential ingredients that native wildlife needs to survive.
Using native plants also eliminates the threat posed to natural
areas by non-native and invasive plants that escape from yards and gardens
White Oak's mission is to introduce you to the full range of landscape and ecological possibilities by using native plants and make them assessable to you and the nursery/landscape industry.
This website provides important educational information on how to
integrate native plants into our landscapes and at the same time
provide the best habitat for native wildlife. It's a win/win combination.
