The Intervale Conservation Nursery was founded in 2002 and is dedicated to growing native, locally sourced trees and shrubs for riparian restoration projects throughout Vermont. Our plants are grown in an ecologically sound manner without the use of synthetic fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides. The Nursery works with landowners, farmers, watershed organizations and government agencies to restore and protect Vermont’s waters.

In addition to growing trees, the Intervale Conservation Nursery provides planting services for riparian buffer zones and storm water management projects. Our crews are skilled in handling bare root trees, reducing the rate of desiccation and ensuring that there is minimal time and handling before they are planted into the ground.

We have partnered with U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to implement a monitoring program of riparian restoration projects throughout Vermont.
