Peter Van Horenbeeck, Boething Treeland Farms:

“Our motto is to do what we do best and stick to it"

The mission statement at Boething Treeland Farms is “we hold true to the old-fashioned values that have guided us for seventy years--hard work, fairness, and integrity. We strive to deliver knowledge, experience, and excellence in customer service. We are proud to be known by those we serve as honest and fair.”

V.P. Peter Van Horenbeeck at Boething Treeland Farms is a veteran of the tree-growing industry, and although his company is best known for its healthy and thriving trees, they also produce a wide range of grasses, shrubs, various types of bushes, and succulents. Ninety percent of their clients are landscaping contractors, with the remainder being smaller, independent retailers, a niche that Boething Treeland Farms fills very well.

Boething Treeland Farms has spent seven decades refining its plant palette and the best practices for nurturing them. Their growers include certified professionals in all fields of plant science who have been educated both in the classroom and the field, bringing a variety of experience and knowledge to the team.

Because Boething Treeland Farms grows plants in different regions of California, it allows their plants to be acclimated to a variety of climate conditions. They pride themselves on innovative growing techniques that produce the finest plant material available.

Van Horenbeeck said, “We design and create custom soil mixes that are specifically targeted to the needs of individual plant species. Our plants are micro-irrigated at carefully timed intervals so that plants can be kept appropriately hydrated without waste. We also utilize integrated pest management practices (IPM) to minimize the application of pesticides while maximizing the health and vigor of our plants. All of them are micro-irrigated to keep the plants appropriately hydrated and progressing properly.”

“Our motto is to do what we do best and stick to it, and it’s an approach that has worked for us well for more than 70 years,” Van Horenbeeck said. “We have 10 locations in California, with eight in southern California and two in northern California. That way, we can grow plants in ideal environments to assure quality, durability, and sustainability.”

Peter and his team at Boething Treeland Farms are thrilled with their new Agra Tech greenhouse in Lodi, CA, with a wide range of advanced features. “We have been working with Agra Tech for decades, and they are a great company,” Van Horenbeeck. “This is our first expansion here at Lodi within the last 15 years, and we are excited about what this greenhouse will be able to do for us. We are using a fog system instead of a misting system for the very first time,” he said. “It’s also so much more computerized--we can control the entire climate in the structure the whole time. It’s also got the shade curtains and vents in the roof, so this is by far the most high-tech greenhouse we have to date.”
