Your Success Starts with Expert Cultural Practices

Success doesn’t happen overnight. When you choose a Goodmark specimen, you know that from seed to sapling, ground to container, your plant has been expertly tended.

Dig Into Our Inventory

Reduce Transplant Shock

We fertilize with slow-release granular nutrients and supplement growth with P.H.-adjusted water and water-soluble fertilizers to help nurture our trees for transplant success.

Select Healthy, Strong Plants

Our spring perennials go through vernalization — or overwintering — which is critical to producing larger, healthier specimens and avoids the hazards of winter planting.

Choose Well-Branched Specimens

All of our trees are pruned and staked at least twice a year, ensuring our plants grow straight and branch consistently.

Control for Pests

Our pest management team uses the latest integrated pest management innovations, like biological controls and degree day timings, to protect your specimens.
