Tree Talk Natives specializes in growing pesticide-free trees and plants native to the northeast and supporting the birds; mammals; and butterflies, bees and other insects that live here. We have flowering trees, broad-leaf deciduous, evergreens, and a wide selection of bushes, wildflowers and grasses.

Some of our products hail from slightly further afield but still thrive in this climate. We have a few cultivars in cases where we thought it better to plant a native cultivar than a non-native and invasive.

Healthy Roots

Our trees grow in fabric containers that not only promote healthier roots but many of our pots are made from recycled materials, primarily water bottles. 

Unlike the hard plastic pots found at most nurseries, our containers not only encourage fibrous root systems but also discourage roots from “circling,” which over time can damage and kill the tree. 

Our containers also allow for airflow, protect roots from extreme heat and cold and promote vigorous root growth.

They also are reusable and make attractive containers for potted plants.



Minus a few exceptions, you can put our trees in your car and plant them yourselves. 

Research* shows trees planted when they are small -- and in containers, retaining nearly 100 percent of their root systems -- do well and eventually outgrow and overtake large trees cut out of the ground and losing 95% of their roots.

Pesticide Free

Like you, we want plants that feed insects and birds. 

Browsing our nursery, you may find leaves with holes in them or aphids on the flower stems. 

Birds eat those aphids, and they eat the caterpillars and other insects feasting on the healthy, chemical-free leaves. 

These are clear signs of a living and sustainable landscape.
