PRT Campbell River

PRT Campbell River produces all commercial tree species planted in Canada and the western United States, including:

  • 1+0 and 2+0 containerized seedlings
  • Nutri-plug™ seedlings (contains controlled-release fertilizer)

Specialty products

  • Large seedlings ideally suited to coastal sites with brush and animal problems. These seedlings are generally produced as 1+0 crops in large containers up to 1,000 ml (61 cu in).
  • Seedlings for summer and fall planting produced in custom-growing programs that provide well-conditioned crops.
  • True firs grown from seed upgrading and in specially developed programs.
  • 2+0 container seedlings grown in a maritime climate with minimal risk of root injury during the winter. These well-conditioned, robust and well-balanced plants provide excellent value. They are especially useful for sites that are subject to vegetative competition and/or snow press and where moisture is not limiting. The seedlings are typically used for summer and fall planting and for spring planting, if grown in large containers.
