Spotlight on Great Lakes Region Cold Storage

From late November to early January, trees grown at PRT Oregon, Campbell River, Hybrid, Armstrong, Vernon, Prince Albert and Dryden destined for customers in the Great Lakes States are shipped to PRT's Great Lakes States Cold Storage facility in Wisconsin. The trees are quickly frozen at a temperature of 7°C (19°F)then stored at between 3°C (27°F) and 5°C (23°F) until they are ready to ship to customers for spring planting.

Fond Farewell to Tom Harvie

PRT customers in the Pacific Northwest U.S. (PNW) know Tom Harvie well. Tom's nursery career began at the Duncan and Koksilah B.C. nursery in 1970. Working with the B.C. Ministry of Forests, he traveled with the nursery development group responsible for determining the suitability of nursery locations throughout the province.

Have You Heard?

PRT Oregon is getting a new name! Fourteen years ago, when PRT's Oregon nursery opened its doors at the site southeast of Hubbard, Oregon, it was the only PRT nursery in the state. With the acquisition of the Plum Creek/Weyerhaeuser facility at Cottage Grove, Oregon in 2017, PRT took another step towards our goal of better serving our customers in the Pacific Northwest U.S.
