About Us

Smith Evergreen has been growing trees for over 65 years. Three generations of the Smith family are involved in the company and work hard every day to make certain our trees represent our family’s high standards and exceed our customers’ expectations. We take great pride in our trees and in the wide variety of evergreen species we grow.

Richard Paul (RP) Smith started our business as a small Christmas tree lot in the 1950s. After success in Christmas Tree sales he decided to take up his own evergreen farm. After numerous growing seasons, sales were on the rise and his own trees came to fruition. RP was joined in the business by his son, Mike and followed by his second son, Jim. By the late 1970’s and early 1980’s, the small operation had grown to sell over 100,000 Christmas trees each year.

Smith Evergreen began growing its wide variety of evergreen trees when customers recognized quality and started asking for more than just Christmas trees. Under the direction of RP, Mike and Jim began our live “balled and burlapped” and “field potted” digging operation. The nursery also took on the growth of over 20 species of pine, spruce and fir trees. Our wide variation of evergreens makes us particularly adept at shipping you a diverse load of trees all in one delivery.

We plant 50,000 – 100,000 evergreen seedlings or transplants each year and currently have over one million trees rooted firmly in the clay soils of Carroll County, Ohio. We offer a selection of balled and burlapped evergreens that are great for border plantings and commercial installations. In addition to three generations of the Smith family, we employ over 20 local employees that are all experienced and dedicated to growing, caring for, shipping and delivering our quality evergreen trees to customers all over North America.
