They have a great selection of unique conifers. The owner is very knowledgeable and helpful though he may be hard to get a hold of on the phone. I've purchased a lot of conifers here and plan to continue to in the future!

I visited Stonewall Nursery, in Oregon, WI., for the first time in the summer of 2007 and was amazed by the variety of nursery stock that is offered. If you're looking for the unusual, this is the place to find it! Stonewall has a large assortment of unusual dwarf and full-sized conifers as well as deciduous trees and shrubs in sizes ranging from one-gallon to B&B (Balled and Burlapped).
This was the only nursery I could find that listed Tsuga canadensis 'Tiny Leaf Upright' (a very fastigiate form of Canadian/Eastern hemlock). While on a garden tour in Iowa, one of the gardens had a specimen of 'Tiny Leaf Upright' and I just had to have it (I have a smallish garden so I like to plant narrow-growing plants). The owner of the garden stated that he had received the plant at a conifer society convention many years earlier, as a small plant, and he did not know where to find the plant for sale. A Google search led me to Stonewall Nursery. If you are within a few hours drive of Stonewall Nursery, it is well worth the time and money, for gas, to visit. You won't be disappointed.
p.s. be sure to bring a trailer so you can transport all of your purchases. (:o)
Stonewall Nursery specializes in Dwarf & unusual Evergreens. This nursery is a small-but growing owner operated company & he carries the most unique & well cared for plants I have ever seen. Definate thumbs up. He also has great wholesale contacts in the west; so that he is given priority over others in size & quantity & if there is only a few, he may well be the only to receive.
