WHOLESALE
We stock approximately fifteen acres of high quality above ground material to choose from. Choose from thousands of shade trees and flowering ornamentals ranging in size from 1.5” to 3” caliper and a select group from 3” to 10”. We stock many types and sizes of evergreens for specimen use and screenings with sizes ranging from 5’ to 12’ with some Spruce, Pines, Arborvitaes and Junipers up to 20’. We carry a full assortment of specimen ornamentals, conifers, shrubs, perennials, grasses and groundcovers.

Service is what this business is all about and our attention to detail is what sets Central Nurseries apart from all the other re-wholesale nurseries. In our quest to be your one stop shop for landscape material we offer the added service of sourcing plant material for you. If we don’t have it in stock, chances are we can find it for you. We can also direct ship material from our growers to your jobsite or yard at considerable savings off our catalog (call for details). Lastly we take pride in our ability to deliver in a timely manner to just about anywhere in New England. We turn deliveries around quickly to meet your tight schedules and deadlines.

FIELD PRODUCTION
We are currently growing on approximately 75 acres at our Chepachet location. We are growing a variety of shade trees and flowering ornamentals from 2” to 8” caliper as well as evergreens like Spruce, Pine, Arborvitae and Juniper up to 12’. We also grow some select deciduous and evergreen specimens and other items that are occasionally not listed in our catalog (please call). We are always trying new things and have been lining out many new varieties for the future.

Central Nurseries employs many skilled workers and uses the latest equipment and technology to cultivate and harvest our trees. We use Optimal tree spades on all of our material with the ability to dig 20” to 70” diameter root balls. Trees dug with our Optimal tree spades have a wider and shallower ball than most conventionally harvested trees; because the balls are wider we get more root mass where it counts (near the surface) and less soil in the bottom of the basket (less weight to handle). We think this all equates to one thing, a healthier more viable product with less problems establishing in the landscape.

We always entertain tagging by appointment and are happy to give tours of the fields.

DELIVERY
We offer delivery throughout New England.

Delivery fees are based on the size of the load and where it’s being delivered. All offloading and handling of material is the sole responsibility of the customer. We do not provide equipment for unloading and customers are required to have the necessary labor and equipment on site when applicable. Please call for a quote to your location.
