University of Idaho Franklin H. Pitkin Forest Nursery


We are a fully operational production container nursery that produces nearly 400,000 seedlings annually, including over 50 species of conifers, hardwoods and shrubs. We are also a hands-on teaching facility, giving our student employees the opportunity to learn all aspects of nursery production and management, as well as to understand the processes of selecting seedlings for restoration, reforestation and conservation.
We are a proud member of the Idaho Nursery and Landscape Association and the Inland Empire Christmas Tree Association. We cooperate with Idaho's private nursery owners through an advisory committee, keeping them up-to-date with our research findings.

Hours: Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m
