Most fruit trees are easy to grow and very adaptable to most soil types. For myself, I prefer Standard trees as opposed to Semi-dwarf and Dwarf trees. However, there is a place for all of these trees in various backyards. As we are dealing with living things here, some of these trees may not be available in the spring of 2010, but have been promised according to availability. We will honor our earlier customers first in the case of limited availability.


Plums are the most maddening of all tree fruits to me. But when you bite into a big Pipestone, or Underwood, it is all worthwhile.

With most plums, as they are a hybrid, they have an odd number of chromosomes, (think ‘Mule’), they are sterile, so they will need a pollinator. I like the Toka, but there are other plums to use as pollinators.


First of all, I know nothing about peaches! I never cared for peaches before. But two years ago, in southern Wyoming, in early fall, I got into some Colorado peaches, and they were fantastic, sweet, and juicy. Our local store peaches, picked green and ripened in a box are a very poor substitute! Other companies are selling peaches for this area, and I found that the CONTENDER looks the best for us. But in talking with one of the women who run this place, (4th generation), she asked me why I didn’t order white peaches. Never heard of them! Says they are sweeter, juicer, and they use them rather than yellow ones, but white peaches do not ship well, due to their tenderness.

WARNING! These, to me, are still experimental. It is worth the gamble on 1 or 2 or a few more trees, but please do not bet the farm on them. As this is a new company for me to work with, I have no idea as to how tall they will be, but they say they will be 3/4 inch diameter, which is normally a 7-8 foot fruit tree, but as stated, no promises.

So gamble a little, and if they make it here, which they say they will, and I have looked at these trees in a controlled area 15 miles north of St. Paul, been in for 4-5 years, had fruit for 3 years, it is worth a little investment. I would not push them out of northern Zone 4.


Now cherries are divided into two groups, sweet and sour. Sour cherries are pie cherries. All cherries are self-fertile.


(Now here is where I get in trouble)! 'They' say you need two varieties, and for years I had only one out here, and had pears every year. But maybe you will have better luck with two. After all, ‘they’ are the experts, and I am only an old country boy who has fruit trees as a hobby!


I can get most shade tree in bare root, thus saving you money. However, trees come in bundles of 5 or 10, so sometimes I will have to refuse you, unless I can find a buyer for the other trees.

All trees are BARE ROOT, and prices are for pick-up at Wilson, WI 54027. Wilson is approximately 40 miles east of Woodbury, right off 94.

Please e-mail us for prices on anything listed without an amount.


WELCOME to the new and improved

Motz Nursery website! 

Well, our first year has come to an end.

It was a really great experience.

We have all of our incredible customers to thank for that!

Even though all of our trees have found new homes, we are already taking orders for 2011! So, feel free to contact us if you want us to hold trees for you for next year. Also, if you have a particular tree you are looking for, let us know. We are always open to suggestions on what trees our customers would like to see us sell.

Again, thank you to all of our customers who have made this transition without Dad (George) possible. It was such a difficult year loosing him, but you all have brought us comfort with your wonderful words and stories about George. Thank you! George would have been touched just like we are.

Please check out our new website. We have tried to make it easier for you to navigate around the different types of trees we sell. We have also added a few new varieties of trees this year.

Keep in mind the $5.00 off per tree


 And, again..... THANK YOU!!! 

We couldn't have done it without you.

Hope to hear from you for your 2011 planting season!

Dean and Karry and Allyson
