Late last summer, the Arbor Day Farm greenhouse staff reached out to a select group of Arbor Day Foundation members – specifically those who’d signed on to further the research of the hybrid hazelnut program.

First, a little backstory:

It takes a dedicated team to grow hundreds of thousands of tree seedlings every year, as we do here in the greenhouse operations at Arbor Day Farm.
Granted, we’re a small team of just three individuals, but it’s inspiring to think about the future forests that literally pass right through our hands every season. It’s rewarding work. We share ideas, we listen to one another, we solve new challenges, and everyone’s opinion is regarded in the decision making process. This team approach is ingrained in the culture of our unique nursery setting.
