The founder of Shrubs and Trees, Inc., Ron Garcia, started the business very informally in the 1970s. He would take orders for specific plants, make contact with quality local growers, and drive to the growing areas to hand select the plants to fill those orders. He knew the importance of using plant material that was raised in the same type of climate and environment in which it will be planted. Today, Ron and his son Dan carefully select and order nursery stock from many of these same quality growers. and make it available to the public from their location on Route 9 in Southborough, MA. Every year, they visit the fields of many different growers, searching out the best plants of each variety and species.
