*Hans Nelson & Sons Nursery

Wholesale Growers of Trees Since 1965
Hans Nelson started working in a nursery in the late 1920's, learning how to grow many different kinds of plants. He started his own nursery in the late 1930's. He grew different deciduous and evergreen shrubs until the beginning of World War II.

The nursery continues to be a family business dedicated to producing bare root and container one and two year shade, flowering and ornamental trees for the wholesale market. Our staff takes great pride in the trees we produce. Starting with the best under stock we can purchase, we use drip irrigation on all field products. Water and liquid fertilizers are applied when needed. Our trees are staked to produce strong trunks with dominant central leaders. Pruning is done throughout the growing season to produce full limb canopies. Our sales representatives have current product availability and pricing. You can contact your sales representative or our office for product information and availability.

Intelligent sprayer helps reduce pesticides
This Intelligent Sprayer, demonstrated at Hans Nelson Nursery in Boring, Oregon, uses lasers and an on-board computer to precisely control where and how much pesticide to spray. The Intelligent Sprayer precisely focuses on crops to reduce the amount of pesticides applied to crops. A high-speed laser scanner calculates the crop in the field and guides the pesticide to where it is needed. The sprayer matches the pesticide output to the canopy size and leaf density of the crop in real-time. Such precise applications can significantly reduce pesticide use and reduce contamination of the surrounding environment. The Intelligent Sprayer is being tested in Oregon, in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Agriculture,and The Ohio State University, and University of Tennessee.
