Welcome To RIDGE HILL MAPLES

Grower of japanese maples & Dwarf conifers

 
 

Our Roots

My grandfather (Pop Pop), Leroy Clymer, was a stone mason who lived in Quakertown, Pennsylvania. As a child of the depression, he worked incredibly hard to make a living. He started growing Japanese maples more than 30 years ago as a hobby and for supplemental income. I can remember as a kid going to my grandparents house every summer, and because they had cable television and we didn't at home, I spent a lot of time in front of the TV. Occasionally I could be pulled out from under the television’s glow to go outside for walks. His yard was filled with Japanese maple trees and he would spend time telling me about them.  Something in those conversations must have stuck because I have inherited the itch to propagate plants as well.  

 

THE GROWER

Nathan Clymer is a full time civil engineer by trade, a gardener, and a lover of the outdoors.  I live on our 6 acres with my wife and two young boys.

"I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery—air, mountains, trees, people. I thought, 'This is what it is to be happy.'"
