CAN (ON): Major tree seed distributor to be shut downA major seed distribution plant in Angus is being shut down by the provincial government.
The Angus Seed Plant once provided all of the seeds used in reforestation efforts across the province. It currently operates at 20 per cent capacity.
But come next year, Ontario’s Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry plans to shut it down.
“We are going to be moving out of an industrial size plant to a native tree seed genetic archive,” says Ken Durst, regional services manager for the MNRF. “That’s going to be focused on biodiversity and climate change science.”
The tree seed plant has been in operation since 1923. Seeds are extracted, sorted, tested and stored in freezers.
The province is looking to the private sector to do this work in the future. But the nurseries that grow the trees say the seed plant is hard to replace.
