Jill Coutts, the director for the Sherwood High School horticultural/green industry programs, recently decided to cut down the old, overgrown tree nursery area from the 1960’s and invest in building a new native tree and shrub container grown nursery.  This new container nursery will give students an opportunity to learn about the exciting rapidly expanding nursery sector involving the production of native species of trees and shrubs grown in above-ground containers.  Some of the advantages of container production include: less acreage required for production, handling convenience, and a nearly year-round harvest and planting season.
