Clements State Tree Nursery, located in Mason County along the Ohio River, sits on property once owned by the grandparents of the famous American author Samuel Clemens, aka Mark Twain. Despite the similar names, the nursery is named after Charles M. Clements, an employee of the USDA Forest Service, who was instrumental in the design of the nursery.
Bare-root seedlings have been produced at Clements State Tree Nursery for nearly half a century. In recent years, the nursery has produced 1–2 million seedlings annually. This year, the nursery has a surplus of white oak, red oak and chestnut oak.
Seedlings are available to landowners in West Virginia and surrounding states for reforestation, coal mine reclamation, wildlife cover and Christmas tree production. Most species are native to West Virginia and all are genetically suitable for planting throughout West Virginia and its neighboring states.
Customers may order seedlings each year from September 1 through mid-April. Shipping begins Thanksgiving week and runs through April (weather permitting). Orders may be placed by mail, over the phone or in person. Payment can be made by credit card, check or money order.
The nursery accepts orders as small as 25 seedlings, so if you need to plant one acre or 50, we have the product to meet every landowner’s needs.
