Cascadian Nurseries is a success story built from the goal of creating a one-stop horticultural distribution center for all our wholesale customers. We serve approximately 400 regular landscape companies, plant brokers, retail and wholesale nurseries, architects and designers, developers, golf courses, and parks – all within the Portland/Seattle metro areas. Our customers range from northern California and the Rocky Mountain States all the way to the East coast. We owe our success to the service we can provide – we’re not only growers ourselves, we’re also brokers of excellent quality plant material from the West coast’s other leading growers.

- If we don’t have what you need on hand, we’ll reach out to the large network of growers we broker with – if it’s out there, we’ll find it.
We’re very thankful for and proud of our location! Our 20-acre sales yard contains over 75,000 square feet of greenhouses, extensive shade houses for production, and our offices. We maintain more than 80 acres of gently- sloped property for field production, and as a green company, we maintain 20 acres of wetlands with ponds, lakes, and streams for wildlife habitat.
Today, the nursery has expanded to over 100 acres. We’ve added 45 acres known as 3M Farms, which includes a 12-acre rural industrial park that was known as the plastic factory. This site has been leased to many tenants relating to agricultural and horticultural services, including Cascadian All In One LLC, and several landscape companies.
In July of 1961, Alfred (Fred) Meisner, his wife Carla, and their three month old twins, Rob and Art, emigrated from their homeland in Holland to the United States. Their youngest son Ed was born in Oregon. In 1969 they started Cascadian Nurseries, then located at NW 143rd and Thompson Road in Washington County. Here they created a one-stop horticultural distribution center, providing one location for everything needed by landscape professionals to operate a profitable business.
In September 2008, we added Cascadian All In One LLC for bark, professional soil mixes and textured aggregate needs. In 1988 we purchased the first 20 acres of the new property at our present location on Dick Road.
