Directions and Map to Washoe State Tree Nursery
Exit Eastlake Boulevard from U.S. Highway 395 at the North end of Washoe Valley. The nursery is approximately 1 mile from highway on the right hand side.

The Washoe State Tree Nursery supplies plant materials native or adapted to the Great Basin and Sierra Nevada. The state nursery program can produce up to 250,000 plants each year and has experience growing 250 different plant species. The nurseries grow 95% of their nursery stock from seed or cuttings and the Las Vegas nursery grows 30% of the plant stock for sales through the Division’s Washoe State Tree Nursery near Carson City. The nursery also provides custom-growing services.


The nursery is now closed for the winter, we will re-open in May 2021.

Due to Coronavirus mitigation the nursery is operating a bit differently this year. We will be offering appointment “curbside pick-up” of preorders on Thursdays and Saturdays. Sorry, no browsing at this time. We appreciate your understanding and patience while we do our best to serve the public and keep everyone safe. See the following link on how to preorder your plants.
