West Haven Nursery is located near Spruce View just 30 minutes west of Red Deer, Alberta.
We are a wholesale Nursery with Zone 2-3 hardy trees at reasonable prices. West Haven supplies trees to acreage & homeowners, landscapers, other nurseries, builders, municipalities, and industry. Our main service areas included Red Deer, Sylvan Lake, Spruce View, Innisfail, Penhold, Rocky Mountain House, Blackfalds, Lacombe, Olds, Sundre and Caroline. Our mature trees have also been shipped to Calgary, Edmonton, BC and NWT.
Most of our trees are root pruned so you receive a fibrous root system that will allow for faster establishment, reduced maintenance and less mortality. With our trees you will receive about 80 to 90% of the roots supporting the tree in the nursery. Compare this to a freshly basketed non-root pruned tree where you only have a few large sized roots off the main stem and lose 80 to 90% of the fibrous roots supporting the tree. Our mature trees are harvested with a tree spade, including soil, and then placed in a burlap lined wire basket (+400lb). An open deck trailer is preferred for transport, and generally you will need a skidsteer or tractor to unload and plant. If you need help, we can provide a list of contractors who can deliver and professionally install your trees.
Our Greenhouse Division propagates tree/shrub seedlings as plugs or potted material. Our stock is Zone 2-3 hardy and focused on native material used for shelterbelts, naturescaping, xeriscaping and reclamation. Contact us if you require a custom contract grower for your projects.
We look forward to serving you!
