Our History 

Charlie Jancic, our staff Operations and Sales Consultant, previously owned and operated the largest nursery in the country specializing in living Christmas trees, Pinery Tree Farms.  Additionally, he has owned and operated several wholesale and retail nurseries throughout his 45 plus years in the industry.  In early 2017, Charlie sold Big Trees Nursery to Environmental Design Incorporated.  This transition has greatly expanded the operations, resources, and expertise of Big Trees Nursery.  In addition to a larger and broader selection of specimen trees, we now offer large tree installation and relocation services through our sister company Environmental Design California, and have a national portfolio of projects.
