Today, it offers a wide variety of native and non-native species at a beautiful facility that covers 20 acres on East Speedway Boulevard. Make that way-far-east Speedway, just east of Pantano Road. If you don't live on the eastside and are concerned about getting that tree all the way to your house, don't worry: A delivery service is available.
