A Very Special Announcement from Pinelands Nursery


Dear Friends and Customers,

After 35 years as President of Pinelands Nursery, Don Knezick is retiring! Pinelands Nursery’s humble beginnings as a backyard operation have blossomed into one of the largest suppliers of native plants in the country under Don’s leadership. He is proud to announce that his wife and business partner, Suzanne, will be stepping into his role as the President of the nursery. Pinelands Nursery will continue Don’s legacy by focusing on providing plants for ecological restoration. Suzanne will ensure that Don’s philosophy to produce straight species native plants that are propagated from local sources in order to provide genetic diversity and adaptation remain a cornerstone. The Pinelands Nursery Team will continue to offer the same excellent products and service you’ve come to expect. By the way, if you are looking for Don, he will be gardening, beekeeping and producing Christmas trees.
