Established in 1897, and still improving our growing operations
The sustainable approach used by McKay Nursery Company adds value to our commercial and residential landscapes while continuing to provide many benefits to the surrounding environment. Nursery production has a simple focus-reduce environmental impact by growing high quality long-lived nursery material.
Our production approach incorporates several programs including:
- Best Management Practices
- Integrated Pest Management
- Integrated Crop Management
McKay believes in spending significant time in research and development to improve production. However, our main focus is to develop and maintain a strong, conscientious employee culture. This is the most valuable input for growing high quality nursery stock and helps us develop the innovative technology to achieve our production goals.
Below are some drone shots of our expansisve nursery and production methods. We're one the very few nurseries that still sell Balled and Burlap, Bare Root, containers and grow bags.

Below is our Langer Tree Farm, which is watered by drip irrigation. Drip irrigation means less weeds and more sustainable watering methods due to our ability to control the watering amounts.
Below is a picture of our Portland propagation facility. It's here where the magic happens with the growth of our plants. We also house all of our perennials here during our peak season in the summer.
