Salt Creek Tree Farms

Tim and Toby Rost proudly established Salt Creek Tree Farms, a division of Rost, Inc., in 1985. Nestled across 400 acres of lush growing fields, we take pride in supplying our own trees to the distribution lot and Superior Garden Center. Specializing in crabapples and maples, we cultivate almost 50 varieties, ensuring a diverse selection for our valued customers.

Why Do We Grow at Salt Creek Tree Farms?

Growing our own trees has its perks, and reducing transplant shock is one of the most significant advantages. Many trees suffer from shock when moved to new climates, but our trees, nurtured in the same climate and soils, undergo less shock when planted at your home or business.

Who Do We Supply?

Salt Creek Tree Farms supplies Rost Landscaping & Superior Garden Center with the plants needed for the retail and wholesale lot as well as the projects sold by our design team. By having the opportunity to supply material to our own company, we have the flexibility to ensure that we have the product we need, in the appropriate sizes to fulfill the client’s requests. In addition to suppling trees to the various divisions of Rost, Inc. Salt Creek Tree Farms sells to various other nurseries in the Midwest.

Container Lot Expansion

In recent years, we’ve broadened our horizons by growing a selection of shrubs on our Salt Creek Container Lot. This expansion ensures a readily available supply of our most sought-after shrubs and perennials. What sets us apart is our commitment to cultivating homegrown plants in larger containers, providing customers with an immediate impact in their newly planted landscapes.
