About Us

OneCanopy is a private entity which allows us a great deal of flexibility in who we do business with. We sell trees to private landowners, government entities, non-profits, other private entities, and many more!

Anyone who works professionally in the conservation, reforestation, or environmental restoration space is someone we would consider a partner! This includes government entities, nonprofits, and other private entities. Please visit our Partners page to see examples of those we’ve worked with in the past!

Yes! In fact – it’s our specialty! We work closely with our partners to develop contracts that meet their ecological and logistical needs. We work collaboratively to identify appropriate seed stock, container size, price, delivery, and payment schedules that work for all. Growing on contract allows us the flexibility to grow a wider variety of material for a diversity of projects. If you’re interested in a contract grow, please contact us directly.

Currently, our services are limited to the production of native plant material, and we do not offer tree planting or seed collection services, although we hope to offer these services in the future!

OneCanopy is a for-profit social enterprise wholly owned by a private foundation, allowing us to operate like a nonprofit in many ways! We can accept donations, as well as volunteers.

As a social enterprise, we measure our success not just by profit, but by our impact on our communities and planet. All profits earned are reinvested into the company to broaden our impact and mission.

For upcoming volunteer opportunities, please sign up for our newsletter! If you would like to arrange a corporate or group volunteer event, please contact us directly at

Most of our volunteer opportunities are focused on seeding, weeding, and general maintenance around our nursery property in Loveland.

Our Trees

There are several steps we take at the nursery to ensure our plant material has the best chance for survival in the harsh Rocky Mountain climate.

First, our plant material is grown from seeds sourced in the region. These seeds are collected from parent trees which have evolved in the arid conditions of the Rocky Mountains and are therefore better adapted for these conditions. This process is different from some trees you may purchase from other nurseries where the parent trees are likely from the Pacific Northwest where temperatures are much more moderate and less arid.

Second, we ensure our seedlings go through rigorous climate conditioning before leaving our nursery. This includes ample exposure to all elements, including extreme heat, cold, and drought conditions. Stressing the seedlings while they are in our care helps to ensure they are “hardened off” before we pass them on to our customers.

Our seed is sourced from a variety of small, private collectors in the Rocky Mountain region. On occasion we receive seed from our collaborative partners, however this seed is typically restricted in use.

We are always interested in building our network of seed collectors and vendors in the Rocky Mountain region. Please contact us if you have seed available for sale.

We grow most of our trees in 10 cubic inch containers that are 8.25 inches in depth. In most instances, you can expect your tree to have 8 inches of above-ground mass, as well as an 8-inch root ball.

We do grow trees beyond this size on a contractual basis. If you are interested in a contract grow, please contact us!

The answer to this question depends on many factors, often determined by the current and past conditions of your location, as well as future goals for the landscape. OneCanopy is happy to help you identify the most appropriate species and planting density for your area.

Correctly timing your tree planting is critical to the survival of your seedlings! Desiccation (drying out of the seedling) is a common cause of mortality in young trees. Desiccation is often caused by warm temperatures and low precipitation. Because of this risk, we typically recommend planting in the spring or fall when temperatures are moderate and precipitation is likely. We tend to see higher survival with fall plantings as soil temperatures are still warm, allowing roots to quickly establish, and precipitation is more likely.
