Itasca Greenhouse, Inc. - Conifer and Hardwood Tree Seedlings

Dear Customers,

We would like to thank all of you for making our first year at Itasca Greenhouse a great year.  It has been an amazing experience, and very eye opening.  In some ways the seedling industry is very similar to the finish tree industry, but some things have been new to us.  We have really enjoyed meeting and visiting with our new customers and learning what you want from our products.  All of this input from you has led to new ideas and different ways of doing things for us.

As we transition more toward growing trees for Christmas tree farms, finish landscape farms and products for the retailers, and focus less on reforestation, we needed to make changes in how the trees are grown.  Our primary mission for these first several years is to grow a high quality tree that is useful for many applications.  This has led us to make changes in the growing containers.  Most of our conifer production has transitioned to a wider and shallower plug which is further spaced in the tray.  This has allowed for more lateral branching, and a better root system.

 

We have also started a new line of transplants this summer.  In the past, Itasca Greenhouse has offered Anderson Band Pot transplants.  We are moving to two sizes of larger transplants that are perfect for field planting or shifting up to larger containers for the retail trade.  The BT36 is 41.5 cu.in. and the MT46 is 72 cu.in.  These transplants are in the system to be ready for the fall of 2018.  We are taking pre-orders on these trees now.  Most of our spruce varieties, White and Red Pine, and several fir varieties will be available in these transplant containers.

 

We have also added a new line of Pacific Northwest varieties this year.  Noble, Grand and Nordmann Fir are all in production in limited quantities this year.  Our Giant Sequoia, West Coast Douglas Fir and Western Red Cedar are taking off great.  We have added several other species as well that are listed in the catalog.  As we move forward with these varieties, we will have more options for those growers looking for something a little different than they have been doing in the past.

 

We are looking forward to working with you for years to come, and providing you with top quality products and first-class customer service.

 

Sincerely,

Dan and Rachael Nielsen
