Nursery Wholesale

McKay Nursery is one of the largest Wisconsin tree nurseries. Founded by William McKay in southern Wisconsin in 1897, McKay Nursery has been specializing in hardy, northern grown nursery stock. McKay Nursery is a leader in the wholesale nursery trade, providing hardy trees, shrubs, and evergreens to customers throughout the northern tier of the country, from Alaska to Maine. We're one of the few nurseries left that sell balled & burlap, bare root, containers and grow bags.

Our Plants

Our plants are grown in a glacially rich, clay-loam soil in southern Wisconsin’s zone 5 climate. As careful farmers and horticulturists, we propagate and select native and northern hardy species. Next we work with the soil structure. By adding our unique transplanting and root practices, we create the dense, hardy root structures for which McKay plants are known. Learn more about our production and propagation at our wholesale tree nursery.
