"Before" & "After"

Emerald Green Arborvitae



These 6' Emerald Green Arborvitae trees make an immediate impact, which will only improve over time.




"The house sold!" --R. (Redmond; a Realtor who needed to screen off part of the property)

"Very good install.  Your workers offered advice and did a great job." --T. (Issaquah)

"Beautiful trees; I'll refer people to you" -- D.  (Clyde Hill)


You can create a nice, outside "private space" in your yard.


"Very Nice Trees" --M. (Maple Valley)

"Excellent Communications; Excellent Trees"--J. (Three Tree Point, Burien)

"It was a pleasure doing business with you" -- K (Redmond)


Our License Plate says it all!

The newly planted Emerald Green Arborvitae are then trimmed on top a year later and fill-in as below.   Or you can just let them grow and they will fill-in naturally.  Note that you can plant these trees closer together than the above, or further apart--it depends on how quickly you want a solid wall.

"Beautiful Trees" --T. (Sumner)

"Thanks so much; beautiful!" --K. (Port Angeles)


The lovely Victorian Manor in Snohomish uses a screen of Emerald Green Arborvitae 

to provide privacy for weddings and other special occasions.  These trees have been trimmed both on top and on the sides.  Most homeowners don't go to this effort. 



"Excellent Trees" --R. Queen Anne

"The service was exactly as you had stated and we are very pleased."--T. (Olympia)

"Plan Ahead"--trees grow!



Before & After & After

Very tricky screening project--3 story house on a hillside.  These Green Giants will get there!




This is a common situation--a large house going up next door right on the property line.  Here Green Giants have been planted as a privacy screen. 

They are fast-growing and over the next few years will totally block that house.


With a major housing development going up next door, these Leyland Cypress were installed. 

They made an immediate impact and will only get better (wish we had a "before" photo).



Before & After

"Hedged" Leyland Cypress 


10-12' Leyland Cypress we installed along 560' of a fish processing plant. 

Within 3-4 years these trees will form a solid wall.


6-7' Leyland Cypress placed as a border. 

These will be pruned to preserve the garden space in front of them.

More Privacy Trees:



Excelsa Cedar "Before" & "After" photo, with 9-10' Excelsa Cedar on 5' centers (right photo) replacing the poor-looking arborvitae. 

This house was for sale and purchasers were turned off by the view of the campers.  The Excelsas screened most of the campers and showed that all a purchaser would have to do is wait and that view would be gone.  We work a lot with people selling properties.  One Agent told us that 50% of listings have privacy issues.




Screening we installed along 1000' of a prison boundary.  Excelsa Cedar on the left/middle, Leyland Cypress on the right.


Excelsa Cedar along roadway to screen off background vegetation.

English Laurel is a good choice to block off these school bleachers.  Within a year or two this view will be totally different.

Marshmallows growing in the field near Snohomish.  We grow things big up here.

This "Helicopter Shot" is a great example of mature privacy screening.  "Emerald Green" arborvitae, interspersed with Redleaf Japanese Maple along the street; large cedars and firs along the driveway side; more cedars and firs at the back.  And an Amazing Maze of "Emerald Green" Arborvitae.


We also sell trees by the truckload to nurseries and landscapers.

A few of the Laceleaf Japanese Maple here at the nursery. 

We believe that we have one of the best selections of large Laceleaf Japanese Maples in the Northwest.




Gold Rider Cypress at our Snohomish tree farm. 

We love the color they add to the landscape.

Redleaf Japanese Maple in Fall.  These trees change color all season and each is different.  



In 2010 our farm celebrated 100 years of farming!



      Two file photos of Thundercloud plums (center and right)--the first the early-Spring light purple, followed by the dark plum purple that it holds until the Fall.   On the left is a photo of one row of our Thundercloud Plums in the field.  10-12' tall, approx. 2" caliper.    We recently installed these in the parking strips of a neighborhood in Seattle.  Beautiful trees, and when you're buying from us you are buying from the grower.



Tree-Ski-Jumping in Norway.  The higher up you hit the tree, the higher your score. 

Do not try this at home.


Shade & Ornamental trees we planted at the beautiful

Campbell's Resort, Chelan, WA


Can you identify this tree?

(It isn't a tree at all; but ironically is logging roads and clear cutting in a forest.)



Boxwood along driveway (with Thundercloud Plum in between)



Beautiful Vine Maple colors.




Japanese Snowbell flowers.  These smell like a Hawaiian lei and so are great by a hot-tub, deck, window, etc.



Occasionally, a balloon lands on our property.

Privacy Trees:  We are a nursery tree farm specializing in Privacy Trees for screening.  We have several thousand privacy trees growing at our Snohomish farm.  Plus we have many years' experience in "what works where", professional planting services, ongoing support, and thousands of satisfied customers.  Buying directly from a grower has great advantages--fresh trees, great selection, and low prices--you maximize your purchasing power.  For more information click here.   

We also have privacy trees that are not available elsewhere, such as our "Hedged Privacy Trees".  For many years we have been pruning some of our privacy trees into tall, narrow hedges so we now have "Instant Privacy" trees in a narrow, hedged form.  Sometimes these "hedged" trees are the only trees that will fit into the planting space, and no one else in the Northwest has anything like them.  You can see our hedged and natural privacy trees in our beautiful 8 minute YouTube Farm Video.

Ornamental Trees:  We also have a nice selection of Ornamental Trees, with many of our trees being on the "Great Plant Picks" list for the Pacific Northwest.

Free Estimates:  We will help you determine which trees are right for your project, and provide you with free, no-obligation estimates.  This is often accomplished by e-mail and phone, usually first using our online Free Estimate Request Form.  Where necessary, we will send one of our experts out to review the project (no cost or obligation).  More information

Location:  We’re conveniently located just 15 minutes north of Woodinville.  Here's a link to our "Directions" page.  Please also read the next section. 

Farm Visits:  We are a working farm not a retail nursery so we don't keep regular retail hours; instead we set up appointments so that we can focus on your project.  This is particularly important during our busy seasons.  Here's a link to more information about why "appointment only" is the best approach.  So please set-up an appointment instead of "just coming out".  Thank you.  (425) 343-2650;

Covid-19 Precautions:  In accordance with the Governor's directives we have made some changes in the way we do things.  For a detailed break-down of these steps please see our "Covid-19 Precautions" webpage.

Payment:  We don’t require any money “up front”—you only pay when the job is completed (unusual exceptions to this are large/special projects or lengthy “holds” on trees).  Be careful of contractors asking for “up front” money; they might not come back!

 Warranty & Support:  When we plant your trees we include staking (if necessary), transplanting fertilizer, and an easy-to-use watering system that hooks into your garden hose.  More information.  We also give a one year Warranty on trees we plant, for no additional charge.  More information   We have a detailed “Care of Your Trees” section of our website, and provide ongoing support--we're available to answer your questions as your new trees grow.  More information 

Customer Service:  We pride ourselves on our Customer Service—real people answering the phone.  We have an "A+" rating with the Better Business Bureau (their highest rating), are an Angie's List Super Service Award winner, have excellent reviews on Yelp, Google, etc. and a 100% satisfaction rating with eBay. 


Our Business:  We’ve been in business since 1995 and have a dedicated, experienced staff, most of whom have been with us for many years.   More information   We sell retail & wholesale, for residential and commercial projects.  We are a registered Washington State contractor (License Number: NURSEL*956J1).  More information   Be sure to hire a registered contractor  --  to go to the Department of Labor & Industries website to check a contractor's registration, click here.  As it says there:  "Unregistered contractors carry no bond or insurance to protect consumers.  Consumers can face serious issues if anything goes wrong on a job."   These liability risks are in addition to fraud, poor workmanship, worthless warranties, etc.  We are fully bonded and insured, of course.

 Customer Satisfaction:  Most important of all is what our customers think of us:

"I am really pleased with your work.  You saved me several thousand dollars, steered me away from trees that wouldn't work, provided healthy and beautiful trees, did a great job planting them, and did everything on time and on schedule.  You can quote me."                                                                          Jo, Vashon Island

"Our privacy bank of trees has done nothing but grow well into maturity.  Our back yard and deck area is totally private and the 10 trees your team planted [in 2005] are rich, leathery and dark green.  We remark on them every day it seems.  Please include me in any of your "Testimonials" as you would be hard pressed to find a more satisfied customer."                                                                                                                  Jim, Port Orchard

"For quality vs. value, your trees are the best landscape purchase I’ve ever made."    Jeff, Seattle

"Michael, I just wanted to pass along a note to tell you how thrilled I am with the trees.  The effect they have brought to our new courtyard in the front of our home here in Seattle has exceeded my expectations!"                                                                Chip Hanauer, Hydroplane Driver--Click Here to see his project.  

"I work in customer service so I know good service when I experience it and you have my top rating.  I would definitely recommend you to anyone who needs new landscaping.  Thanks again.”               Carol, Camano Island

"The [new] trees were a great privacy feature when we sold the last house!  We now have a much larger space we want to talk with you about . . "                                                                                   Katherine, Fall City

“My compliments to your crew.  We’ve had a lot of contractors working on our house recently and we’ve seen the entire range; and your guys were excellent. The trees make things look so much better—I started smiling as soon as I saw them going in."                                                                                    Holly, Queen Anne

"You guys are the best nursery I've ever done business with! And I have dealt with a few. You did what you said you would, on time with attention to detail rarely found. From the beginning of the quote process all the way through to the last detail you made it easy. And you work to ensure that the trees will thrive after planting with detailed advice, a complementary irrigation system, and a website filled with useful information. Most nurseries will just dump off the goods and tell you best of luck, put some water on them. You provide a quality product that sets you apart. Your crew was friendly, polite and operated as a well organized team. I would recommend you without hesitation! Thanks for doing a great job!”                                                                                                   Ryan, Buckley

"We can not believe how beautiful your trees are.  The privacy is unbelievable. If you ever need a testimonial let us know.   Our yard is perfect!  We sit there and say "my oh my”!               Suzanne, Tacoma 

"I don't think I've ever been as happy with something I've purchased."                           Sarah, Sammamish
