Welcome to LI Natives

As one of the most comprehensive native plant producers in New York, Long Island Natives is dedicated to growing a wide variety of native species representing the local flora of the Northeastern U.S.

Long Island Natives specializes in growing container trees for use in conservation efforts for parks departments, municipalities, and native gardeners.  Many of our plants are ideal for local habitat restoration and re-vegetation projects.  Our nursery uses local seed sources whenever possible to produce plants that are genetically adapted to our local climate.  

Long Island Natives is a division of Country Gardens Nursery, a wholesale nursery operation established in 1947, located on the southeastern shore of Long Island, NY.

100,000+ Trees for NYC

Long Island Natives has rapidly expanded over the last half decade and has quickly become the "go to" source for many restoration experts, local municipalities, landscape contractors, and native gardeners in the greater tri-state area.  Although we like to focus on plants that are true indigenous species of Long Island, we also grow many native plants that are found in areas within the greater northeastern United States.  

Our increasingly wide selection of natives grasses, rushes, sedges, ferns, forbs, shrubs & trees gives us the ability to work on a wide variety of restoration efforts.  From supplying the coastal vegetation along our shorelines to river bank stabilization in the Catskills, LI Natives has the plants you need to accomplish your goal.  

Our biggest project to date has been our continuous work with NYC parks department's natural resources group. where we have shipped over 80,000 trees to date in the efforts to reforest open spaces within New York's 5 boroughs.
