Practices

It is surprisingly rare to find an organic nursery.
Conventional nurseries grow their plants in black plastic pots sitting on black plastic fabric cloth, materials that come from finite resources and are only used once or twice then discarded. Plants grown in pots not only produce more waste but require more energy as they need more water to stay hydrated during the dry season. Not to mention, these conventional nurseries typically use high amounts of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides.

At Heartwood, we grow our trees using minimal off-farm inputs, and we never ever spray or use chemicals in the nursery. We produce our own compost, biochar, and “goat straw”. We inoclulate each tree with mycorrhizal fungi. Call us “organic”, “holistic”, “permaculture-inspired”, “sustainable”, etc; we just find these methods make good common sense.
