About Us

We at the Nebraska Statewide Arboretum aim for sustainable landscapes for healthy homes and communities.  We are a certified non-profit organization with our funding based on plant sales and memberships.  By purchasing our plants you are helping fund an organization that has brought over 100 arboretum sites to the state of Nebraska.  Nebraska being located in the middle of the Great Plains region of the United States, trees are a great resource to our homes and communities.

Our main focus in our plant sales is to grow and sell plants that are meant to take the harsher environments of the Great Plains region.  The vast majority of our plants are regionally native, so many of our plants are rare or difficult to find in most nurseries and garden centers, this is to prevent creating competition.  Our focus is on plants that benefit the environment and lives of people not only in Nebraska but across the nation with this online store!  If this is your first time shopping with us, here are a few things that we would like to inform you on.

  • Our plants come in smaller sizes: Planting in small sizes is a great advantage for the plant's survival, we also do so to keep our plants at affordable prices.  It also makes shipping easier!
  • We collect the seeds for many of our plants: We search the area for native seed sources for our plants.  This may mean that one plant will be available one year and not the next.
  • We propagate the plants ourselves: There are always plants in the "pre-sale" stage.  If you are ever looking for a specific plant, contact us and we may have it available in a few week.  It may just not be available at that exact moment.

 We are not a "9-5" garden center.  If you would like to come and shop apart from out open houses contact us so we can schedule a time to have you shop with us!
