Joe Willis

Lone Oak Farm is a working plant nursery, located between Nashville and Hendersonville, Tennessee.  Lone Oak is owned by Joe Willis, a Tennessee Certified Nursery Professional and an ISA Certified Arborist.  Joe has a degree in horticulture.

Joe fell in love with bamboo while working on his undergraduate degree and started collecting bamboos from all over the world. This interest has turned into 31 years of growing bamboo commercially.  Joe, joking says that “he doesn’t have all of the bamboo answers, but he has most of them and is still learning every day."
