The Harrington Tree Nursery is owned and operated by a dedicated and experienced group of professionals. With backgrounds in forestry, horticulture, management, accounting, and human resources, we are fortunate to have knowledgeable individuals with diverse perspectives to guide the company. Each member of our administrative and technical teams worked their first season as summer students/greenhouse workers.


Our administrative team keeps operations running smoothly while ensuring that our employees have all the tools they need to work safely and efficiently.
