The Las Vegas State Tree Nursery supplies plant materials adapted to the Mojave Desert. The nursery produces more than 100,000 plants each year and has experience growing 100 different plant species. The Nursery grows 95% of its nursery stock from seed or cuttings and grows 30% of the plant stock for sales through the Division’s northern Nevada nursery, the Washoe State Tree Nursery. The nursery also provides custom-growing services.
