History

Pinelands Nursery was established in 1983 by Don and Suzanne Knezick.  Originally, we marketed container grown blueberries, raspberries and grapes to garden centers in the Mid-Atlantic States.  While that business proved to be very successful, our interest was really in the propagation of native species.  With the adoption of federal and state environmental legislation, such as the Pinelands Protection Act, the Clean Water Act and most recently, NPDES Phase II stormwater regulations, we were able to completely shift the focus of Pinelands Nursery to the production of indigenous trees, shrubs and herbs.

Today, Pinelands Nursery is one of the largest native plant nurseries in the US, supplying millions of plants for environmental restorations throughout the Mid-Atlantic States.  With seed collection in New Jersey, Virginia and New York, we are proud to be able to propagate plants that are genetically adapted to local conditions.

In the late 1980’s, Pinelands Nursery started supplying coir logs and mats for streambank stabilization and bio-engineering projects.  We now offer a full line of erosion control blankets, hydro-mulches, geotextiles and silt fence, leading us to change our name to Pinelands Nursery & Supply.  In 2006 we introduced  our own custom blended seed mixes for stormwater management basins and construction sites.  We are now truly a “one stop shop” for all of your erosion control and seeding needs.

With over 20 years of practical, on the ground experience, Pinelands Nursery & Supply is recognized as a leader in the field of environmental restoration.  Please feel free to contact our expert staff, as we look forward to working with you on your next project.
