Founded in 1988 in Victoria, BC, Canada, our strategic partner PRT has established themselves as a pioneering force in the reforestation space.

Most recently, PRT acquired IFCO seedlings in the US Southeast, which has further strengthened their footprint and given them an unparalleled presence in North America. This strategic expansion allows them to serve customers across all North American forest regions with efficiency and effectiveness.

Every reforestation project has unique requirements, and PRT prides themselves on their ability to provide customized solutions. With over 200 product lines and species of trees, they tailor their offerings to meet the specific needs of their customers. Whether it's a restoration project, afforestation initiative, or any other reforestation endeavor. their diverse range of seedlings ensures that they have the right species for the job.

PRT’s commitment to sustainable forest management is reflected in their impressive production numbers. Currently, PRT grows more than 600 million seedlings annually, making them a pivotal player in replenishing and restoring forest ecosystems. This year, they achieved a momentous milestone by celebrating the growth of their 5 billionth seedling. This remarkable accomplishment stands as a testament to the trust their customers have placed in them, including One Tree Planted’s long-standing commitment to working with them.

PRT takes immense pride in being a highly valued partner for our North American projects. PRT's longevity in the industry is a result of the strong relationships they have built, and their unwavering commitment to quality and customer satisfaction. They understand the critical role One Tree Planted plays in restoring forests, and we are honored to work with them to enhance the well-being of our planet.
