Fox forestry’s nursery is…
A secure and well maintained greenhouse constructed in the fall of 2016.
It’s innovative design allows us to grow plant material even during the harsh Maine winters.
more about Our nursery
Our greenhouse is kept warm all season long by our wood boiling system, which utilizes low quality local wood byproducts, which would otherwise have no outlet. Heat is effectively transferred throughout the greenhouse space through radiant tubing, running both along the greenhouse structure as well as within the greenhouse beds. This system allows us to maintain micro climates that mimic those found within our state, enabling us to produce hardy native plants which can be used to combat shoreline erosion and the spread of invasive species.
Fox Forestry is also partnering with countries across Europe to expand our search for sustainable tree species that may be genetically suited for Maine’s changing coastal climate.
