Trent Hill Pizzaglia

Since our beginnings we have utilized cutting edge technology to produce root balls that are easy to handle and ensure plant survival. We have accomplished this through the use of transplanting machines shipped from Italy.

In the New Year we will be the first nursery in the country to own and work with the latest technology from Pazzaglia, the FZ 162T/SR, a vibratory digging machine that will handle root balls comparable to a 75” diameter dug by traditional machines. We will harvest trees up to 7” in caliper while capturing more root structure in a comparatively smaller ball, roughly 63”. This new machine will allow landscape contractors to provide clients with instant gratification while increasing profits by handling a smaller root ball and cutting loss in the process!

Stay tuned as the machine will be at our facility in the very near future. We would love for you to come by to see it in action. If you want to get a glimpse of it prior to arrival, it will be demonstrated by George Leidig of Autrusa at the MANTS show, January 8-10, 2014.



We have been clearing the fields and storage areas making way for new products in the spring. Container materials are tightly stored in cold houses for protection from the cold. Though we have a way to go to we are excited about the upcoming season!

Luke has been working diligently on liner orders and we are happy to say that we will provide the staples of the industry with a continued emphasis on native plants and unusual varieties. You have come to know us as a ‘niche’ nursery and this identity will remain intact.

Some items of particular interest;

Osmanthus Fruitlandii-a fragrant evergreen that is tolerant of shade with an interesting growth habit

Schip Laurel-beautifully structured evergreen capable of screening tight areas, in sizes to 4’

Otto Luyken Laurel-all sizes of this evergreen staple so popular in the landscape

Viburnums-a diverse selection of plants in sizes ranging from 2’-8’, the larger plants will be a delight for the landscape contractor
