grown and delivered over 500,000 live stakes and native plants each year in Western Canada
Dale Currey is the founder and day to day manager of the nursery, and planting services. He graduated from Northern Alberta Institute of Technology Forestry Program in 1974, and also earned an associate degree with the Canadian Institute of Forestry in 1987. He started his career in Forestry, working for Blue Ridge Lumber, and other notable forestry groups.
He branched out on his own in 1984, with his first nursery seedling contract. He started with one greenhouse and then we began expanding. He then incorporated Currey Reforestation Ltd. in 1988 with the addition of 10,000 square feet of greenhouse space. He continued to add growing space until 1992 as the demand for seedlings steadily increased, and was growing in excess of 2,000,000 seedings a season.
Dale and his team have grown and delivered over 30 million local native tree seedlings in Western Canada. CRL has supplied large public corporations, Governments as well as many municipalities, counties, cities, and individuals.
Currently CRL now grows, supplies, and plants various sizes and types of native plants, instead of purely growing select varieties for a large single contracts. This flexibly has given CRL a great deal more experience in other areas such as environmental services, cut block planting (reforestation), pipeline reclamation, oil and gas land reclamation, supplying to municipalities (such as the City of Edmonton), and even building parks from the ground up.
We have been contracted to grow, supply, and plant to the Agriculture and Forestry Department (Alberta Government), City of Edmonton, City of Red Deer, City of Calgary, City of Lethbridge, Alberta Transportation, and multiple counties and towns across Alberta. We have contracted our environmental & planting crews to work with private groups such as Weyerhauser, Hinton Pulp, Millar Western, Canfor, Slave Lake Pulp, Kana Oilfield, TransCanada Pipeline, Pembina Pipeline, Trans Mountain, and many more.
