Our business is growing the future.
Committed to Excellence for the Benefit of All.
In hopes of inspiring and recruiting more qualified employees, our IFA Nurseries Aurora location was featured in an article “Seeding a Growing Industry” for University of Idaho’s Franklin H. Pitkin Forest Nursery.
“The biggest issue right now is finding qualified people to run facilities,”
said Shannin Murphy, who worked at Pitkin before earning a U of I forestry degree and manages an IFA Nurseries facility in Aurora, Oregon.
“There is always a baseline need for tree seedlings, it’s not going to go away.”
There is always the need for more nurseries and qualified individuals who know how to grow seedlings.”
– Shannin Murphy, IFA Nurseries Aurora Manager
