Fraser Valley Cedars
Fraser Valley Cedars Ltd began in 2009 by installing close to 6000 Emerald Cedar Trees (emerald green arborvitae) at a field in Abbotsford where the company is based. The company has planted additional fields every year since and has grown to have fields in both Chilliwack and Mission BC. Fraser Valley Cedars now has an inventory of over 50,000 Cedar trees of various varieties. The company does both wholesale and retail sales to a wide variety of customers including homeowners, builders/contractors, schools, government agencies, retail nurseries, landscapers, businesses, etc.
Initially, Fraser Valley Cedars was a broker between growers and landscapers/homeowners/nursery centers. The company called into question the quality of a lot of cedar trees that were available from different suppliers and decided to get into wholesale growing to better manage the quality of trees (fullness, color, texture etc.) through proper pruning, watering and fertilization programs.
