Our Tree Story
From our growing area to your local Earl May Garden Center to your home, our trees will be enjoyed for years to come.

Grown in the Midwest

Earl May trees begin their journey at our growing area in Shenandoah, Iowa. Starting from bare roots, trees are potted and then moved, spaced, and repotted depending on their size and development. Our tree experts take pride in making sure they are properly nourished and are off to a good start.

Select your Favorite

All of our trees are shipped from our growing area in Shenandoah to your local Earl May Garden Center. It is here that our trees showcase their beauty. When selecting a tree for your landscaping area, you can feel confident in your choice.

Enjoy your Tree

Our staff of Earl May certified experts can offer a host of planting advice, from choosing the proper planting location to amending the soil for best results. If you prefer, the Earl May Green Team can even do the digging for you! Let us help you plant your new trees, shrubs and perennials. Enjoy!
