Greening the Canadian Landscape

The establishment and survival of plants to improve resource efficiency, beautify the Canadian landscape and increase the profitability and competitiveness of the Canadian nursery landscape sector are key goals of this research program. Current research focuses on soil remediation strategies to increase tree growth rates, nutrient management and validation of species selection in remediated sites and fertilization practices for the nursery production industry. The program works with a number of partners across Canada to test and improve tree longevity in challenging locations.
