Tree & Shrub Seeds

For over 35 years, Nova Tree has sustainably collected conifer, hardwood, & shrub seeds from natural stands in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island.

 

Our most popular seeds are Nova Scotian Abies balsamea (Balsam fir) and Cornus canadensis (bunchberry dogwood). Because seed crop quality of many trees and shrubs varies from year to year, not all species are available at all times. Please check stock availability below.

 

All coniferous seed is cleaned and de-winged. All seed is kept in cold storage.

  • Order seed by email through karen@novatree.ca (preferred) or by phone at 902-662-3129.
  • Payment is accepted by Visa, MasterCard, or Cheque.
  • Shipping by Canada Post Expedited (in Canada) or FedEx Air (in the USA) is charged at cost.
  • Phytosanitary certificates, if required, are $20 each.
Conditions & Receiving Instructions

Conditions: Seeds are sold without warranty, expressed or implied, as to phenotypical expression and productiveness. A germination test determines the maximum germination potential (i.e., viability) of each seed lot. The germination rate of a particular seed lot is a key indicator as to how that seed will perform in the field.

 

Receiving and Storage: Tree and shrub seeds are perishable. Immediately upon their arrival, all shipments should be carefully unpacked, inspected, and placed in proper storage. Please notify us immediately regarding any problems with seed condition, quality of stock received, or quantity of stock received.

 

Claims: Claims must be made in writing within 7 days of the shipment arrival date. If the buyer does not give notice, the buyer agrees to have unconditionally accepted the goods. Nova Tree will not consider claims for seed that has been modified by the buyer in any way, whether through cleaning, processing, improper storage, planting, or otherwise. Claims for losses while goods are in transit must be filed directly with the carrier.
