This is Chris Redgrave for Zions Bank Speaking on Business.

Kassie Pebworth of Big Trees Nursery loves what she does at her tree nursery in Kanarraville so much that when she goes on vacation, she likes to check out nurseries and visit famous gardens because she’s a self-declared “tree nerd”. She also teaches a class about proper tree selection in March every year through USU Extension since she understands how trees are an important investment.

Big Trees Nursery is known for offering cold-hearty plant material acclimatized for Utah, with a special focus on fruit trees. Kassie set her nursery up so you really feel like you’re seeing what a particular tree would look like in your yard. One of the challenges facing companies like Big Trees Nursery is a decline in available trees because many people stopped growing them during the downturn. So, Kassie has identified this opportunity and is working to expand.

In addition to retail, she has her own tree farm which has also developed a wholesale side to the business. She loves living in Kanarraville and being a destination nursery where people from all over enjoy Big Trees Nursery because of the small-town feel. Plus, she also offers a 90-day guarantee on any tree they transplant to make sure it’s taking.
