Main Street Trees is a small urban family tree farm within the town of Napa. We grow locally sourced natives such as Live Oaks, Valley Oaks, Blue Oaks, Jolon Oaks and Redwoods. We also have Cork Oaks and Holly Oaks, which are non-natives but very suited to thrive in this region. We use local soil and a unique type of porous growing container, a grow-bag, that promotes excellent root systems and allows for easy transplanting: out from the grow-bag and right into the new location.
We are also very proud of the great fruit trees we now carry. The wide varieties of fruit trees we stock are all of the highest quality, further enhanced by our unique healthy growing methods. We have apples, figs, pomegranates, pluots, lemons, oranges, and mandarins.
Plant fruit trees in your own home garden and you will reduce the need to shop for fruit. Enhance the beauty of your garden throughout the changing seasons, with the lovely blossoms, showy fruit and lush foliage. Your family will love the fresher, delicious taste of tree-ripened fruit and you will eat more nutritiously. Also, growing more in smaller spaces and timing the ripening can extend food production year round.
For our native trees, and the non-native shade trees, by gathering seeds from Napa and Sonoma Counties’ beautiful and healthy older trees and then growing them in local native soil, with natural soil flora and climate, we are making available products that flourish in our region.
We use a unique porous container that minimizes the cutting of large roots when dug from the field, and nearly eliminates the unwanted circling of the roots that is common in plastic container-grown trees. The above-ground growing at the nursery, in these felt-like containers, keeps the roots from getting hot due to the cooling qualities of evaporation, and the fabric self-prunes the roots.
We can grow a robust larger tree in a lighter package, facilitating transport !
