DC STATE NURSERY at
CASEY TREE FARM
The Casey Tree Farm, originally surveyed by our first president and avid horticulturalist George Washington, occupies 730 acres of land along the Shenandoah River in Berryville, VA. We have dedicated 100 acres of that land to sustainable tree production using techniques that prioritize long-term soil health and productivity while safeguarding the overall environment.
WHAT WE OFFER
Our vision is the production of sustainably grown, high-quality trees to help communities meet their tree canopy goals. Along with the meticulous care, we provide to our soils by feeding the microflora using organic-based inputs, all our trees are grown in-ground using rootbags, which encourages greater fine root production than traditional balled and burlapped trees. More fine roots mean better water and nutrient exchange and better chances of survival post-planting. Rootbag-grown trees also use less soil than their balled and burlapped counterparts, reducing environmental impacts and transportation costs, and simplifying planting.
Partnership with DC
The Casey Tree Farm in Berryville, VA is a partnership with The District Department of Transportation. Together we are the DC State Nursery.
