Celebrating 50 years –  and still growing!

Environmental Concern is proud to offer the highest quality native wetland plant material in the Mid-Atlantic region.  EC propagates native wetland plants from locally collected seed, developing state-of-the-art restoration practices and educating the public throughout the country about the importance of wetlands.  Our nursery is steadily growing to keep up with demand as more government agencies, communities and individuals realize the benefits and beauty of native plants in the landscape.  We look forward to providing you with quality plant materials and excellent, professional service.

Depending on the season, species are available in a variety of sizes and forms, including plugs and various container sizes (all trees and shrubs are in containers).
