    Conifer Kingdom
    OK, I know that this is for maple resources but Conifer Kingdom has a great selection of maples and conifers. I would have preferred the name Maple Kingdom but I like conifers in my garden as well. I got to see the plants this year at the MANTS show in Baltimore and they were very nice.

    Greer Gardens
    Was a nursery in Eugene, Oregon with an online ordering page, though the website says “We are now retiring after 50 years. We are developing our great 14 acres into an exclusive retirement community. The Springs Living at Greer Gardens. Our shipping is being turned over to Bloom River Gardens”. (Springfield, Oregon). That site says Oregon grown specialty plants. Ornamental Trees from Bloom River Gardens.
    Greer Gardens is definitely no longer a nursery; The Springs Living development has been completed. The link here is to the Greer Gardens archived site.
