Born in America’s National Parks as a supplier of live redwoods with interpretive packaging, The Jonsteen Company is known for creatively packaging its trees for a variety of markets and purposes; for teaching about trees and their many benefits to people and the planet; and for supporting, in perpetuity, the folks giving, selling, and growing its trees.
At its founding, Jonsteen committed to spread a message of respect for our environment, and a love of trees. They dedicated themselves to teaching about the manifold benefits that trees bring to our planet, our communities, and our lives individually and collectively. They believe that by caring about our planet and the life in it and by understanding our connectedness, a better, brighter future will be born.
Jonsteen specializes in Giant Sequoias and Coast Redwoods, but also grows many other tree species — trees appropriate to climates and landscapes of all kinds around the country and around the world. As a tree educator, Jonsteen works with individuals, schools, businesses, non-profits, and the government to boost the knowledge and appreciation of trees and, especially, to increase actual tree planting.
Finally, this veteran co-founded operation is the originator of an irresistible line of 100% guaranteed seed germination grow kits, which have been an interpretive staple in America’s National Parks for years, and can be found in some of our country’s truly great settings, from The White House to Disneyland!
