Van Essen Nursery Company was started in 1976 by David Van Essen.  He began the nursery with 10 acres along the South Santiam River near Lebanon, Oregon.

While the nursery has grown to over 300 acres, our mission has not changed.  We are as committed now as we were 30 years ago to consistently provide quality nursery stock, competitively priced with personalized and detailed customer service, and are just as committed to responding to our customer’s needs, and being attentive to ever-changing market trends.
