Who We Are


Schwope Brothers Tree Farms is located in Independence, Missouri, just east of downtown Kansas City, MO.

We have been growing trees for over 30 years. From two brothers trying to make a little extra money to support their families, to a son with a dream of having his own tree farm. Our founder carried on the family name and built Schwope Brothers Tree Farms into a business that supports several families.

Schwope Brothers Tree Farms has grown from 1 farm of 40 acres to 25 farms with over 1,200 acres. We search for optimal growing soil in our area to produce premium quality and durable trees and shrubs for transplanting in all areas of the market that we service. Our plant varieties have grown from 10 to 233 species. Plant varieties are chosen for their native or adaptive characteristics, suitable to grow in our market’s conditions.

We extend an invitation to all. Come visit Schwope Brothers Tree Farms and see how we can support your business.
