0. F. LniiHing, proprietor, is situated two miles east of Salem, on
the Garden Road, telephone No. 181 Bine, is today one o the most
prominent nurseries on the Pacific) Coast. The phenomenal growth
of this industry has nuule this particular nursery one of the strong
est factors in the up-building of the fruit business in the West. II
can be truly said that more is being done at present by the nursery
than ever before in the way of starting the fruit grower oil' prop
rly, by furnishing him with excellent varietes of trees, and not
;iny old thing, us used to be the rule, and which greatly retarded the
advancement of fruit, growing.
Horticulture has, however, materially advanced in late years, and
just such painstaking nurserymen as Mr. Lansing is, have done
much to give Oregon a world-wide reputation for fine fruits.
Mr. Lansing came to Oregon from Ohio, where he had success
fully engaged in the nursery business on a large scale for over 30
yours. He began opcrutiontrherc eleven years ago, and has steadily
increased Ins business to the present large proportions, selling nur
sery stock all over the "West. During the past eight years large
shipments of nursery stock have boon supplied from this grower
to Corcan and Japanese Orehardists in the Orient. This is very grat
ifying to Mr. Lansing, and all of these shipments have given the
best of satisfaction and have fully withstood the rigid examinations
required by the foreign port inspectors, who are only too glad to re
ject any foreign stock where there is the slightest cause.
Mr. Lansing has successfully grown all kinds of roses and shrubs,
and has made- this branch of the business a special study, having
succeeded in propagating, grafting and budding the most delicate
varieties of trees, roses and shrubs.
Fruit men are beginning to understand that the success of their
line is like the success of the builder who builds on a solid founda
tion. The rapid growth of the Quaker Nursery's business is the
highest tribute that can be paid to it. The orders for trees have
been crowding in aiid forcing larger plantings every year, until- to
day it is one of the largest businesses in Oregon.
The stock from this nursery has stood the severest tests by which
the critical state oflieials of other states, who arc appointed to in
spect all nursery sock shipped from other states, and not a single
instance has there been a rejection of stock made out of the many
deliveries. Mr. Lansing has a well-organized system of soiling as
well as shipping nui-sery stock, which extends throughout the West
ern states and Canada.
Western nursery stock is becoming well-known in the East, and
can be grown and shipped to the East fully as cheaply as if grown
there, and" the trees are far more perfect than their home product,
nd proving an advantage to the Eastern nursery men.
The Quaker Nursery has fast grown into prominence by the pains
taking and just business methods employed. The system of mark
ing their trees makes it next to impossible for errors, and therefore
each and every tree or shrub are exactly as orlerod.
