Welcome to Simmons Oak Farms.  We are wholesale growers of  large trees and palms.  Established in 2002,  Simmons Oak Farms is located in Harlingen, Texas .   We are currently growing 150 acres of nursery material. 

Most of our trees are field-grown in RootMaker  bags.   The process prunes the roots as they reach the bags material, eliminating any circling roots.  The end product has a fibrous root system that is ready to take off after installation.   Another benefit is that we are able to safely harvest most species year round.

We are now growing an expanded number of palm trees.   Good genetics, nutrition and spacing have given us beautiful specimen palms with hefty, healthy trunks!

Owners, Cecil Simmons and Leonard Simmons, are part of a family that has farmed in the Lower Rio Grande Valley of Texas since 1919 - five generations  so far.   In addition, our outside manager, Tony de la Rosa, brings over 30 years experience in the nursery trade.  Our sales team of Alvin Dunn and Mary Beth Simmons, TCNP, would love to find the perfect material for your job. If we don't grow it, we probably have friends who do.

Simmons Oak Farms is committed to providing the nursery trade with a quality product at a reasonable price.
