Rusty Mangrum Nursery McMinnville TN. Wholesale Nursery - Fruit Trees - Peach, Apple, Plum and Pear Trees. We also have shade and ornamental trees and seedlings.

Rusty Mangrum Nursery is a wholesale grower of “bareroot” trees and seedlings.
We started propagating a few hundred plants in a sandbed in 1987 and have grown to producing several hundred thousand plants and seedlings each year. Our plants are grown anywhere from one to three years. They are then [when dormant] taken up bareroot.

We begin digging fruit trees around Nov.15, followed by shade/ornamental trees, and when we are finished, we start taking up seedlings somewhere around Jan.15 each year.

Once our bareroot is up and in the packing barn, they are then graded and bundled up and ready for shipment.
