Legacy Trees

Everyone remembers the special times in their lives that they spent with family members. Here at Moon Valley Nurseries some of our fondest memories began when we were children planting trees with our mothers, fathers, or grandparents. These trees have left behind their legacy for generations to come and for us to enjoy for a lifetime and beyond. We hand selected a few of our favorite local trees as well as some we have planted in this collection to share with our family and yours. We hope you enjoy and find your new legacy tree from this collection.
