Itasca Greenhouse, Inc. - Conifer and Hardwood Tree Seedlings

Dear Customers,

We would like to thank all of you for your continued patronage for the last year.  With each passing year, we are adding new ideas and products to our business, and taking the opportunity to hear what our customers want from us.  We are continuing to listen and meet with many of you over the course of the year to make Itasca Greenhouse "the place" to get plug seedlings and transplants. 

By growing each species in the correct size container for its growing habits, we are able to produce the highest quality plant for you.  Some species will do well in any size container and we offer them in various sizes, while some perform well in only one size container.  By doing several trials over the last 3 years, we have determined what works well for each species with container size and timing of the seedling.


We are also doing tranplants in several different sizes.  We are still doing some species in the traditional size 20 Styroblocks and the Band Pots.  Our BT 36 container produces a very heavy caliper tree and makes a great field liner.  We have added the ARP 25 air root pruning container that is a 21 cu. inch plug.  This growing system allows for excellent root systems going out to the field or larger container production.  We will continue to refine this growing system to improve quality and reduce shipping costs for the customer.


We are always searching for new varieties and better ways to grow our current varieties.  We spent some time in Oregon this summer with the Pacific Northwest Christmas Tree Association members.  We learned a great deal about some lesser known varieties, and developed relationships with several growers in the area.  This will allow us access to some different ideas and seed sources for our Pacific Northwest varieties.  We also learned a few tricks to increase our germination rates to increase production on some hard to grow species.


As we continue to progress in "Growing for the Future", we will continue to strive for the best quality and customer service, to meet the needs of our customers.  We would like to say "thank you" to our loyal employees for their hard work and dedication to Itasca Greenhouse.  Without these loyal people progress is not possible.  They strive every day to produce quality products and implement new cost saving ideas to pass onto our customers.  Through innovative processes and new ideas, we will continue to work toward being a leader in the industry for years to come.
