From Garden Center to large scale production.

Hjorthede Nursery has been through an extensive development since 1973, when Thorkild Iversen bought what was then a small garden center. After some years the focus of production was shifted from end consumer production to large scale production of bare root plants for the forest industry.

 

Hjorthede Nursery has a production area of approx. 90 ha. Which produce primarily bare root plants for forest, shelter belts, hedging and christmas tree and greenery production. Our up to date production facilities take heed to the environment, which is ensured by our continuous development of new production methods and optimizing each individual work operation.
