Welcome! We are North Central Reforestation’s new owners, Lance and Emily Dorschner. We took ownership on December 29, 2017, and the following week Lance moved to the original site in Evansville, MN, to work alongside Dave, Michelle, and Candice, who trained him in the successful operation of the company. In the fall of 2018 ground was broken in Marshall, MN, and the process of relocating the entire facility began. We look forward to continuing Dave and Michelle’s commitment to quality and excellence and wish them a long and happy retirement! We also wish the best to Candice Trenne, Daves daughter and committed long-time employee, as she moves on to her next adventure!

North Central Reforestation, Inc. has been specializing in growing containerized tree seedlings for over 40 years. Our greenhouses are located in the blustery, open prairies of Southwest Minnesota, so our trees grow up tough!
We also provide bareroot stock from reputable wholesale growers to supplement our own stock.

Most of our species are native to the north central United States: Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wisconsin, and Michigan. As a regional business, we are geared for the upper midwest, although some species may also be appropriate for other parts of the country.

We are a Minnesota Certified Nursery Stock Grower.

Plant trees!!

“It is not merely that the world is bettered by saving, replacing, and multiplying trees. It is that an aim of this kind becomes an impluse towards developing a mood and an outlook which will increasingly make it natural to think for the future, for other people, for generations yet unborn. Planting a tree is a symbol of a looking-forward kind of action; looking forward, yet not too distantly.”
Richard St. Barbe Baker, British forester and environmentalist, 1889-1982
