Extraction Facility

Seed Extraction

In 2022, Vernon Seed Orchard Company completed construction on a seed extraction facility. This new facility will allow seed producers the opportunity to decrease wait times, reduce transportation environmental impacts, manage cone storage more efficiently and receive their product in a timelier manner.

VSOC is currently extracting and processing Douglas fir, lodgepole pine and hybrid spruce seed.

Our Commitment

“We are committed to reinvesting in our long-term tree improvement goals by building a state-of-the-art facility that will enable seed to be extracted in the interior of BC” stated Jeff Mycock VSOC President and West Fraser Chief Forester.
