Ruppert Nurseries’ History

Ruppert Nurseries was incorporated in 1990 when brothers Craig and Chris Ruppert, then owners of Ruppert Landscape Company, ventured into the nursery industry by lining out eight acres of nursery stock to help support the demands of the landscape market. Over the past two decades, the company has expanded its nursery production by buying additional acreage and increasing the quantity of new plantings each year. In 1996, the property of Fall Creek Farm was purchased and slated to become the company’s primary nursery field. In 1999, as the first liner planting matured, Ruppert Nurseries moved its offices to its current Laytonsville, MD location. Additional surrounding land purchases have provided the nursery with over 600 acres for its growing operations. Ruppert Nurseries has grown to become one of the premier large-caliper wholesale tree nurseries in the central and eastern U.S. and specializes in providing the highest quality stock available.
