Plant inventories are tight in 2016 for a number of reasons- •The early, extended and severe cold in November 2014 killed numerous plants that reduced our inventory for the 2015 sales season. •Strong sales in 2015 used some of last year’s production intended for this year. •Sales this year are up at least twenty percent over last year for the same time period. •Suppliers we count on to supply our needs and resupply our deficiencies in inventory are likewise affected by all of the above. •Large growers have not increased production- especially container evergreens as much as the market is demanding. •The availability of sufficient nursery labor may be limiting large growers from growing additional inventory.

What are we doing to assist our loyal customers in accessing the plants they need to maximize their business opportunities- •I am encouraging our landscape customers to place their orders as soon as they have the project signed to ensure availability as well as provide us time to bring plants in to meet the demand. •While we have not turned away new customers; we have not called on new customers increasing sales with our existing customer base. •Glacier Nursery, Inc. production has increased significantly in container trees and perennials well above pre-recession levels. •We have eliminated some species and sizes that have had historically low sales and increased our production on the remaining species and sizes to meet higher demand. •We have redoubled our efforts through production and attendance bonuses to maximize the output of our existing labor. •We have increased the wages of our crew members to improve employee retention and insure an adequate supply of labor to increase production.
