Our People

Baxter Wholesale Nursery was started on 40 acres by Randy Baxter in 1972.  One of the first to attempt to grow specimen trees in Idaho, Randy operated the Nursery on a strong foundation of quality plants and customer service and expanded to become one of the largest specimen growers in the western United States.

Today we at Baxter Wholesale Nursery consider strong, long-lasting customer relationships to be our strongest asset. We strive to ensure that every aspect of our customers’ needs are met with immediate personal attention. Please do not hesitate to contact our knowledgeable sales staff with any inquiries regarding our products and services.
