Lori Follett - Erie, Pennsylvania
Our company has been happy buying from Schmidt for more than 50 years because their focus is on quality trees with good roots and straight trunks! We appreciate the overall quality of roots which can be trimmed to fit well into containers.
We’re grateful for all the new and improved JFS varieties and can trust that they are tested and good for our nursery and for the industry. Red Sunset® Maple is a workhorse of a tree that continues to be our top seller. Their crabapples keep getting better and better, and with less suckers, thanks to RightRoot® rootstocks.

For 17 years, we’ve appreciated being treated like family by a company that makes us feel like valued customers and partners in making great plants together. Turtle Creek Nursery is really small, but I never feel like I am unimportant! Our sales rep’s recommendations, based on his experience as a local grower, help us decide what will grow well and sell well in our area. JFS introductions that have become staples for us include Sparkling Sprite® and Royal Raindrops® Crabapples and Redpointe® and Armstrong Gold® Maples.

JFS’s commitment to valuing customers and growing quality trees has convinced us to purchase more products with each passing year. We switched to larger liners to speed up our ability to bring finished products to market. JFS’s trees are a good fit. We do very little maintenance to grow their trees to saleable size. This saves labor costs which adds great value. JFS trees aren’t the cheapest, but their quality is reliable and they deal with any issues quickly and fairly.
Wade Anderson - Erda, Utah
I can’t think of anything I’d really change in our 16 years relationship with JFS. In a word, it’s flawless. There is no better tree supplier, and their customer service matches the quality of the trees. Their highly consistent quality and extensive product line has allowed us to maintain a reputation for quality and diversity of product line. When we celebrate trees at their customer functions, they make us feel like we’re all in this together!

If you want to be the best, you need to carry the best.! The uniform quality and consistency of JFS trees, backed by a wide range of material, gives us the ability to produce higher quality plants and offer a greater variety of trees to the public. The office staff is always on point. The lifelong friendships I’ve made are a special bonus added to the excellence that I’ve experienced in my 35 years doing business with JFS.
Ryan Glover - West Jordan, Utah
JFS is the best tree grower we work with, thanks to their reliability and professionalism. Consistency of product over the 40 years that we’ve been buying Schmidt trees helps us plan better for our needs and for those of our customers. Craftsmanship and quality are excellent, and customer service is second to none. Access to signage material is really helpful.
Tom Lowe - Albers, Illinois
Year after year, JFS delivers a quality, consistent product. In a business where you get what you pay for, we value the quality of the trees we receive, and the great info from my sales rep. Over the past six years, Schmidt has created a true partnership that’s helped us develop our container tree program.
