Did you know that we grow 100 million trees every year? But it’s not just about quantity.

Quality is everything to us, which is why we take our seeds from a carefully managed seeding orchard rather than from the forest. We check every seed individually to make sure each one we plant meets our standards.


Seeds need a lot of nutrients if they are to grow into strong, healthy trees. At the nursery we grow our seeds in peat because the quality is more consistent than soil.


We also try to replicate nature as closely as possible. So if there isn’t enough natural snow, for example, we’ll use a snow machine to make sure there’s enough to insulate the seedlings from frost.
