We at King Nursery believe in Environmental Improvement through Landscape Design. Our objective is to seek out, grow and promote disease-resistant trees that are suited to the Chicago area. Methods used to achieve this are intensive pruning techniques, drip irrigation to avoid plant stress.
Who We Are
The Story of Jim King and King Nursery
If you’ve ever loved race cars, then you know the beauty of high performance. This brought teenager Jim King back again and again to the Oswego Drag Raceway. But little did this teenager know that 30 years later, the raceway would no longer exist. Instead a 110-acre nursery operation located in Oswego, Illinois would stand in its place.
Now located in Big Rock, we specialize in landscape material that will perform best in Chicago-area conditions, that will meet the needs of both the landscape contractor and the property owner alike.

Mr. King was very personable and it's ALL ABOUT THE TREES! Acres and acres of trees large and small. No fancy shop or knick knacks to make a buck... just trees. When he talks about them, you know you are buying his heart and soul and years and years of work for each tree. Take care of them!
