Tooley’s Trees is a retail and wholesale nursery in Truchas, NM, on the highroad between Santa Fe and Taos, at 7,960’. Focusing on varieties that are drought tolerant and adapted to high pH, we grow species trees, shrubs, and grafted fruits. We grow our trees and shrubs in native soil in fabric bags and rootmaker pots.  Our stock is grown with organic methods and we practice holistic orchard management. It is time consuming and labor intensive, but results in healthier plants, soils, water quality and beneficial insect populations.

Watch Gordon plant a tree in our orchard!


We have many heirloom and uncommon varieties of grafted apples, apricots(sometimes), plums, pears and cherries. Some of them may be new to you but are an opportunity for you to grow varieties that have all but disappeared from our markets.  Our grafts are on rootstocks carefully selected to match climate and soil types in this area.  Our species trees and shrubs are easy to care for and will provide screening, habitat and food for wildlife and yourself.

We believe in selling small caliper trees with well-developed root systems.  The fabric root bags we plant in are key factors in building a fibrous root structure.  Smaller caliper trees establish more quickly with less transplant shock, and grow more vigorously in difficult sites than large caliper trees.

We are pleased to be working with the Quivira Coalition’s New Agrarian Program to host apprentices. Please check out their website for more information on their programs.


We are only open by appointment for picking up pre-orders right now. We are taking appointments for Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 8 to 11 am and 1 to 4 pm. Our inventory for spring 2020 is very limited so please give us as specific a list of what you are looking for as you can.


We will close for the winter on November 1, 2020.
