Cherry Creek Tree Farms

Founded in 1993 with three locations in the Denver, Colorado metro area, Cherry Creek Tree Farms, LLC is a vertically integrated wholesale nursery and tree farm. The Company sells trees, shrubs and perennials through its two nursery locations in Aurora and Brighton and in 2000 it began growing trees, shrubs and perennials on its farm, which is co-located with the nursery in Brighton. The Company primarily sells to wholesale customers, including builders, landscapers, and to do-it-yourself retailers.

In October 2004, Greyrock provided $4.0 million of subordinated debt and a $260 thousand equity co-investment to support the acquisition of Cherry Creek by Valor Equity Partners.
