Industry Associations
Poul's Nursery conforms to or exceeds ANSI standards for ball uniformity and size.

When it comes to tree ball size, bigger isn’t always better. Twenty-six years of experience has taught us that an oversized ball results in excess freight cost for our customers; an undersized ball reduces transplant success. Poul's Nursery hits the sweet spot for uniformly-shaped, solidly-tied root balls wrapped in our high grade 10oz burlap and heavy-duty baskets. Our goal is not only to meet and exceed ANSI standards, it is to assure our customers longevity and ample time before planting.

Since 1986, Poul's Nursery has been dedicated to growing a carefully selected line of only the finest quality flowering shrubs, larger caliper shade, ornamental and evergreen trees. In the past 24 years, Poul's Nursery has grown substantially with two locations totaling 165 acres. A family-owned business, Paul Kjeldbjerg and his two sons, Dan and Alan, have dedicated themselves to continuously providing our customers with outstanding service. Dan, a graduate of Northern Illinois with a Marketing degree, runs the Landscape and Construction division of Poul's Landscaping, established 1966. Alan, who oversees the Nursery Operations, is a graduate of Ohio State University where he received his degree in Ornamental Horticulture.

The staff at Poul's Nursery is also committed to learning and improving the nursery and always remembering the core principles that the company was founded upon. We promise healthy, proven hardy, uniform plants, dug or selected from our irrigated hold yard. Prompt attention to availability questions and order confirmations are equally as important. Easy and efficient plant pick-up with our experienced loaders demonstrates our constant effort to satisfy our customers. We welcome you to visit the nursery!
