PRT Harrop grows all commercial tree species planted in Canada and the western United States. The nursery offers a full range of standard seedlings and related nursery services, including:

  • 1+0 and 2+0 container-grown seedlings
  • Brush Buster® seedlings
  • Nutri-plug® seedlings (contains controlled-release fertilizer)
  • Christmas tree liners

Specialty products
The nursery specializes in the following container-grown seedlings:

  • Seedlings for summer planting. 1+0 and 2+0 crops from custom growing programs that provide well-conditioned seedlings for summer planting.
  • 2+0 container-grown seedlings. The mild climate and consistent snow cover in winter provide an ideal environment for 2+0 spruce seedlings. These well-conditioned, robust plants provide excellent value, especially for sites subject to vegetative competition and/or snow press. They are typically used for summer planting on sites where moisture is not limiting, but can also be used for spring planting if grown in large containers.
  • Difficult-to-grow crops. PRT Harrop also specializes in difficult-to-produce crops such as western red cedar and western white pine 1+0 and balsam 2+0 (Abies lasiocarpa).
