CalForest Nurseries is the largest independent container reforestation nursery in the Pacific Northwest. We produce between 20-25 million conifer seedlings per year for private timber companies, non-industrial private landowners, and public agencies throughout the western United States.
CalForest Nurseries was established in 1978 in Covelo, California by Tom Jopson to grow conifer seedlings for reforestation. Tom grew 200,000 seedlings that first year. In 1988, the business was moved to Scott Valley in Siskiyou County in order to better serve the reforestation activities of its expanding customer base.
Since 1988, production has expanded by providing responsible customer service, and by always meeting customer needs for quality and quantity.
Critical components of the nursery include a highly uniform irrigation system, accurate fertigation equipment, maximum exposure to ambient conditions, daily crop records, and production equipment that allows for rapid and accurate sowing and packing. CalForest has specialized in minimizing seed use, particularly with scarce and valuable seed lots.
We pride ourselves on our exceptional service and the transparency we provide customers. Notably, seed and seedling data are provided online so that our customers can assess how well their lots are performing as they plan for outplanting. We encourage our customers to visit us and inspect their lots throughout the season.
