MrMaple brothers buy historic Buchholz Nursery 

Brothers Matthew and Timothy Nichols of MrMaple.com, a nursery that sells Japanese maple trees in East Flat Rock, North Carolina, have officially purchased Buchholz and Buchholz Nursery in Gaston, Oregon. On Sept. 29, 2023, the brothers joined Talon Buchholz in the signing of the purchase agreement. 

MrMaple.com sells over one thousand cultivars of Japanese Maples along with other rare and unusual plants via mail-order, shipping to all forty-eight continental states in the U.S. The nursery began when Norman Nichols, the brothers’ father, began selling Japanese Maples as a hobby. He then passed his company down to Matthew and Timothy in 2008. It now ships out hundreds of plants each day to plant collectors across the nation.

Buchholz has named over one hundred cultivars of Japanese Maples, from the Ghost Family to the Japanese Princess. This 25 acre farm in Gaston, Oregon, sells wholesale maples, conifers and other plants. Buchholz originally bought the nursery from Japanese Maple author J.D. Vertrees’ family. 

“We intend to continue the quality wholesale plants that Buchholz is known for and continue the legacy.” M. Nichols of MrMaple.com said. “We hope to bring together the best of both worlds where each business benefits from the others’ amazing product lines.” 

The Nichols brothers have announced that they will not change the name of Buchholz and Buchholz Nursery. For more information, visit mrmaple.com.
