This nursery specializes in the following products:
- Seedlings for summer planting. We offer custom-growing programs that provide reliable, well-conditioned seedlings for summer planting.
- 2+0 stock types. We grow these seedlings at our southern BC nurseries at Harrop and Campbell River on Vancouver Island, where favorable climatic conditions and consistent snow cover (Harrop) minimize overwintering risks and provide ideal growing environments. These robust, well-balanced seedlings are economical and ideally suited to for sites subject to vegetative competition and/or snow press. They are typically used for summer and fall planting on productive sites where moisture is not limiting. 2+0 stock types can also be used for spring planting if grown in large containers.
- Seed processing and storage. Our state-of-the-art facilities for seed extraction, processing, storage, testing and stratification enable PRT Prince Albert to provide seed services for all conifer species.
