Want to help keep native trees growing in your state? Find the best selection of indigenous species for the State of New Hampshire here at Nature Hills Nursery!

Ranging from USDA growing zones 3 to 6, the Granite State is home to a wide range of songbirds like the state bird the Purple Finch. New Hampshire has plenty of diversity to offer from its humid continental climate to the south, to the subarctic in the north, with warm, humid summers, and long, very cold, and snowy winters. You need trees that can handle it all!

Choosing native trees for your State means you will know your tree will thrive where it is well suited to climate and soil because they originated there! They need less water once established. Native selections establish faster and tolerate local growing zones, climate, weather, and anything else your State can throw at them.

Plus you’ll feed pollinators, songbirds, and wildlife by providing them with a tree they recognize!
