Davidsan's Japanese Maples
Our beautiful new nursery location is:
919 Farmingdale Rd, New Berlin, IL
That's 5 minutes west of Springfield IL
We are just 90 minutes from St Louis; 3.5 hours from Chicago;
and 3.5 hours away from Indy. Google up a map.
Our hours are:
9-6 Mon thru Sat, 12-4 on Sunday
And by appointment any other hours
Since it is winter, we will not be able to take any pictures or tell you how tall a certain tree might be because all our trees are stored inside heated greenhouses and difficult to access. Rest assured you will only receive from me nicely shaped, top notch trees that are large for their pot size. When we are able to get the trees out and reorganized, we might be able to send you a picture or measurement but please only on larger trees.
VISITING DAVIDSAN'S JAPANESE MAPLES
IN PERSON IS THE BEST IDEA!!
As I always say, if you live within driving distance - even 4 or 5 hours away - It is best to come by and pick up your own trees. And we want to see you! This location will be open the first week of April... or maybe the second week if bad weather rears its ugly head.

OUR BIG MOVE TO A NEARBY LOCATION
WE HAVE 22 ACRES THAT IS LOCATED JUST 3 MINUTES AWAY FROM OUR LAST YEARS LOCATION .. WE WILL HAVE IT UP AND RUNNING BY APRIL1 2014 ... THIS SPRING HOPEFULLY AROUND THE FIRST WEEK IN APRIL .. WE WILL HAVE REGULAR HOURS MONDAY THRU SAT 9AM - 5PM and Sunday 12-5 or other hours by appointment. BUT IN ALL CASES ADVANCE NOTICE IF YOU WANT A PERSONAL TOUR OF OUR ORIGINAL LOCATION AND/OR THE NEW ONE. BUT WITH SO MUCH ACREAGE ALMOST 8 TIMES WHAT WE NOW HAVE WE WILL HAVE A MUCH MORE USER FRIENDLY SPACE .. PLUS GALE AND I GET OUR BACK YARD BACK ;>) HOORAY.. WE WILL STILL BE OPEN FOR LIMITED TOURS OF OUR BOTANICAL GARDENS AT OUR CURRENT SPOT AT LEAST UNTIL WE HAVE ENOUGH GARDENS IN PLACE AND MATURE AT OUR NEW SPOT .. . BASICALLY A PERSON CAN MAKE AN APPOINTMENT TO SEE OUR GARDENS AT OUR CURRENT LOCATION AND THEN DRIVE 3 MINUTES TO OUR NEW ONE AND BUY TREES . WE WILL HAVE 13 GREEN HOUSES ON THE NEW SITE ALL ORGANIZED FOR VIEWING PLUS AN NEW RAISED BED GARDENS, STATUARY AND MANY OUTDOOR LARGER TREES AVAILABLE. WE WILL ALSO HAVE A PICNIC AREA SHADED SO YOU CAN TAKE A BREAK .. WE HAVE WATER AND SNACKS AVAILABLE. AND A LARGE PARKING AREA .. IT IS A QUITE AND PEACEFUL AND LOTS OF WILDLIFE . WE ARE EXTREMELY EXCITED ABOUT OUR NEW DAVIDSANS NURSERY IT IS GORGEOUS AND PERFECT IN EVERY WAY .. PLUS YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO NAVIGATE IT MUCH EASIER THAN OUR CURRENT SPOT
YOU WILL NOT FIND HEALTHIER BIGGER FULLER MORE WELL BRANCHED TREES IN ANY POT SIZE THAN AT DAVIDSAN'S
YOU MAY BE ABLE TO FIND A CHEAPER SMALLER JM. BUT THAT USUALLY MEANS A PENNY WISE AND A POUND FOOLISH .. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR. AND BUYING A CHEAPER TREE THAT'S BEEFED UP ON FERTILIZER WITH A SMALL ROOT BALL. JUST A FEW MONTHS OR ONE GROWING SEASON LONG (BASICALLY A BAND POT SIZE PUT IN AN OVER FERTILIZED ONE GAL POT). WILL LIKELY RESULT IN A NON TREE SHORTLY .
WHAT I MEAN BY THIS
#1 THESE QUASI ONE GALLONS WITH SMALL ROOT SYSTEMS ARE PRONE TO BEING TO WET OR TOO DRY AND THEREFORE MUCH MORE LIKELY TO DIE
#2 THESE SMALLER TREES ARE THE ULTIMATE CRITTER FOOD IF PLANTED OUT OR KEPT POTTED WITHIN CRITTER REACH
#3 YOU WILL HAVE TO WAIT YEARS TO ENJOY THEM AS JMS GROW SLOWLY IN MOST PLACES WITHIN THE USA WHICH IS NOT RECOMMENDED FOR THOSE THAT ARE OVER 50 OR PLAN TO MOVE WITHIN 5 YEARS.
I SELL ONE GALLONS BUT MINE ARE TWO FULL SEASONS OLD . BUT I NEVER RECOMMEND THEM TO BEGINNERS. I ALWAYS SAY "SAVE YOUR MONEY AND BUY A BIGGER TREE" . I DO NOT SELL BAND POTS OR SMALL ONE GALS WHICH ARE BASICALLY BAND POTS. ( BAND POTS ARTE SMALL +-2" WIDE SQUARE POTS WHICH ARE +- 3" LONG. BAND POTS ARE USUALLY SOLD TO BIG SELLERS WHO BUY HUNDREDS AND THOUSANDS AND EXPECT A CERTAIN AMOUT OF DEATH RATE BUT ARE ALSO SET UP TO BETTER TAKE CARE OF THEM THAN MOST INDIVIDUAL BUYERS.
MY DREAM IS THAT THIS ONGOING QUEST FOR THE CHEAPEST TREE WILL END . I REALLY DON'T LIKE SELLING jMS LIKE SOCKS AND UNDERWEAR . I DIDN'T GET INTO THIS BUSINESS TO GET RICH BUT I DIDN'T GET INTO IT TO BE NICKELED AND DIMED EITHER. JMS AND OTHER RARE TREES SHOULD BE SEEN AS AN INVESTMENT IN SANITY AND BEAUTY AND PLEASURE. YOU ARE BUYING TIME WHEN YOU BUY AN OLDER TREE. TIME MANY OF US JUST DON'T HAVE OR CAN'T BE GUARANTEED TO HAVE.
IF YOU BUY ELSEWHERE DON'T BE SURPRISED THAT YOU WILL GET INFERIOR PRODUCTS AND SPEND MUCH MORE ON SHIPPING AND WAITING 10 DAYS SOMETIMES TO GET IT FROM THE WEST COAST. BEING IN THE MIDDLE OF THE COUNTRY ONLY 2-3 DAYS SHIPPING WITH FEW EXCEPTIONS... AT DAVIDSANS YOU GET HAND PICKED TREES THAT ARE BOFFO AND ARE PACKED LIKE FINE CHINA. WITH OUR PROFESSIONAL WHITE GLOVE PACKING SYSTEMS DONE BY ADULT EMPLOYEES.
I KNOW THIS BECAUSE I'VE BEEN THERE DONE THAT AS A COLLECTOR .. IF YOU ARE ON A TIGHT BUDGET JUST WAIT AND SAVE MONEY ( NOT MUCH IN MOST CASES) AND BUY FROM DAVIDSANS WHERE YOU GET A FAIR PRICE FOR A TREE THAT WILL GROW IN MOST NORMAL WEATHER CONDITIONS .. CHEAP JMS ARE USUALLY JUST THAT ... CHEAP JUNK!!
ABOUT JPEGS OF OUR TREES
UNFORTUNATELY WE CANNOT DO JPEGS OF ANY TREES LESS THAN TEN GALLONS OR GIVE EXACT SIZES ( WE CAN GIVE APPROXIMATE SIZE)...WE JUST DON'T HAVE THE TIME AND IN WINTER EVERYTHING IS STUFFED AWAY IN HEATED GREENHOUSES NOT ACCESSIBLE. BE ASSURED YOU WILL BE SENT BOFFO TREES LARGE FOR THERE POT SIZE.
IF YOU DON'T TRUST ME TO PERSONALLY MAKE SURE YOU GET THE BEST POSSIBLE PRODUCT AVAILABLE AND SUPERIOR TO ANYWHERE ELSE , THEN YOU BEST TAKE YOUR BUSINESS ELSEWHERE CAUSE SADLY I DON'T HAVE THE TIME OR ENERGY TO DO JPEGS OR SPECIFIC MEASUREMENTS ON SMALLER TREES SORRY. ONLY APPROXIMATE SIZE. lARGER TREES 10 GAL AND UP ARE MORE OF AN INVESTMENT FOR YOU AND THOSE TREES WE CAN DO "A SINGLE" JPEG AND EXACT SIZES WEATHER PERMITTING AND IN SPRING, SUMMER OR FALL NOT WINTER. I HOPE YOU UNDERSTAND IT'S ME NOT YOU ;>)
AND OF COURSE IF YOU LIVE WITHIN A FEW HOURS OF US YOU ARE ALWAYS BETTER OFF STOPPING DOWN AND PICKING OUT YOUR OWN TREE. PHOTOS DO NOT DO JUSTICE TO THE TREE AND YOU MAY LIKE SOMETHING ELSE BETTER . AND WE MOST OFTEN HAVE DEALS ON FOR TREES YOU PICK UP HERE.
VISITING US IS ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT FOR BONSAI FOLKS .. WE HAVE LEARNED THE HARD WAY IT IS NEVER A GOOD IDEA FOR YOU AS A BIONSAI BEGINNER OR EXPERT TO BUY OVER THE INTERNET. WE NEITHER ENCOURAGE THIS OR PROMOTE IT . WE ABSOLUTELY WILL NOT DO PHOTOS FOR BONSAI FOLKS . AND WE ARE NOT ONLY DOING OURSELVES A FAVOR BUT YOU TOO ... BONSAI FOLKS SHOULD ALWAYS BUY LOCALLY OR VISIT US DIRECTLY. IF WITHIN DRIVING DISTANCE WE WANT SATISFIED CUSTOMERS .. AND BUYING OVER THE INTERNET WITH PHOTOS VIRTUALLY INSURES THAT THAT WON'T BE THE CASE
The Best Japanese Maples COME ONLY FROM DAVIDSAN'S
SO BUY, COLLECT, AND GROW ONLY THE BEST !!

Just use the link below and let it play . Depending on your computer speed you may want to pause it a bit to load it up .. I have tweaked it to load faster but if you have a very low speed connection rate just pause the video for 10- 30 seconds (although you may not need to even with a low connection with my tweaking). Let me know what you think.
I hope you enjoy it and get excited about all the cool rare Japanese Maples and other rare companion trees I carry. This video alone should give you a feel for the great variety of trees I carry that are available for sale answering that common question "what can I put in those special spots in my yard that demand something different and eye catching and not just the same old crap everyone else has . Just hit the link below and view our nursery. ( if you have any trouble viewing this video please let me known through the contact section of this web page at top)
