About Us

Brown Dog


Welcome to River Valley Nursery, nestled in the beautiful Musconetcong river valley, where our trees are continually nurtured by its fertile soil.

Our family business began in the 1930s as a produce business. Over the years, Grandpa Bellon expanded the business to include the sale of flowers, the establishment of nursery stock, and landscaping services. Through the 1960s and 1970s, we began growing and incorporating rare conifers into our landscape work.

Philip Bellon, began working with his father when he was just 12 years old. Over the years, Phil has mastered the art of landscape design. Here are just some of the awards he has won:

· three-time winner of the Governor’s trophy for displays featured at the New Jersey Flower and Garden Show
· winner of People’s Choice Award at the New Jersey Flower and Garden Show

· honored with an award from the Soil and Water Conservation of New Jersey
