Range of our Products and Services
Landscaping Trees – Native and Ornamental
Our sweet spot is production of beautiful trees, whether native to PEI or our region or ornamental, meaning they are grown for their beauty and their proven ability to adapt to the Maritime climate, although they are not native.
We produce trees from 6’ tall to 35’ tall and have trees available up to 45’ in height. In the horticultural industry, large trees are measured in caliper or stem diameter measured 15cm above ground and given in millimeters, and the trees we sell range from 30mm to 1,000mm being between 1.5” and 4” caliper
We find that trees between 10’ to 15’ tall and having caliper between 40 and 70mm are most popular.

Arbor Nursery is your PEI Tree Nursery
What our customers are saying about our trees…
The quality of Arbor Nursery’s trees and samplings I think are both a testament to the great care they put into nurturing their product but also a breadth and depth of knowledge in thier industry. I learned so much from them prior to even making an order thanks to their experienced and knowledgeable staff.
I met with Jan and Kevin at the nursery more than once before purchasing trees. They were obviously well informed and took the time to discuss the various tree varieties with me at the nursery and answered all of my questions. I would not hesitate to purchase from Arbour Nursery again. In fact I will be doing so this fall.
I have used Arbor nursery for tree stock for many urban projects in Charlottetown, Rustico and Summerside. We have been very happy with the quality of the trees. Many are grown in root bags which allows nutrients and moisture to reach the roots but keeps the roots inside the bag so there is little root loss on planting. Others are grown in large containers with irrigation. As well the trees are grown at the Penn Road site so they are adapted to PEI’s wind and salt. The quality and prices are good enough that I have also purchased stock for my own property.
Arbor Nursery has a great selection of trees and delivers excellent customer service!
Years later I became reacquainted with Arbor Nursery through the Island Nature Trust. The nursery has helped with advice and indeed the provision of native species for several projects. The Serenity Circle at the Jenkins Complex, is an example. This feature designed as a therapeutic setting for persons with PTSD shows specimens from Arbor Nursery thriving. Our Red Maples and Red Oak are off to a great start.
My family and I have also used Arbor Nursery for our properties. Again excellent products with great survival rates.
The quality of the products and the knowledge and passion of the staff will continue to bring me back to Arbor Nursery.
