PRT Kirkland Lake

PRT Kirkland Lake produces all reforestation species required in northeastern Ontario, Quebec, and the Great Lakes Region and northeastern US, including:

  • 1+0 and 2+0 container-grown seedlings

The nursery has cold-storage facilities for seedlings produced for spring planting. Seedlings can also be stored at our cold storage facility in Manitouwadge, Ontario.

Specialty products
PRT Kirkland Lake specializes in the following products:

  • Seedlings for summer planting. 1+0 or 2+0 crops grown in custom programs that yield well-conditioned seedlings.
  • 2+0 container-grown seedlings. The moderate climate, consistent snow cover and our ability to generate artificial snow provide an ideal environment for 2+0 seedlings. These robust, well-balanced seedlings provide great value, especially for sites subject to vegetative competition and/or snow press. They are typically used on productive sites as a replacement for bareroot seedlings. We also offer 2+0 seedlings grown at other PRT nurseries that have favorable climates for overwintering.
