JDI’s nursery facilities grow millions of top-quality seedlings annually. Our expert growers from across the globe have extensive experience in growing superior trees and together with our field foresters, they work to maximize the health of our planted trees across our land.

To grow the best trees, you need the best genetics found in the best seeds. Seedlings produced at our nurseries are grown from superior, field-tested seeds from our seed orchard in Parkindale, New Brunswick. For 45 years, our tree improvement program has demonstrated significant improvement in growth rates, timber quality and pest resistance.

World-class research takes place at our lab at Maritime Innovation Limited to ensure our seedlings are protected after they are planted. The staff utilize Somatic Embryogenesis (SE), a tissue culture method, to provide an efficient means to rapidly produce elite tree varieties that are selected from our breeding program.
