In 1950, Triangle
Nursery was established by Lanny Clendenon, Dub Panter, and Roscoe Miller.
Three people started the business giving the name Triangle for the three
corners. In the early days of the business it was sometimes referred to
as the three cornered nursery. Over the years there were few changes, until
the early 1960's when Edward S. Porter bought into a partnership with one
of the original three gentlemen. A very short time later Porter purchased
the business in its entirety.The business prospered for many years, growing
to around 250 acres in the early 1990's. In 1995 David G. Hill and Rickey
D. Minton purchased the business from Edward Porter. From 1995 to the present
the company has grown to over 700 acres in production and a 5-acre container
yard.We have about 400 acres in Irving College, Tn, where the company was
originally started and 300 acres in Van Buren county, Tn. Deciduous material
is grown in the valley with primarily Coniferous material grown on the
fertile mountain in Van Buren county. In 2002, we added over 10,000 sq.
ft. of greenhouse dedicated to growing our own liner production, with limited
numbers available for sale. The company has the opportunity for a new generation
to continue the heritage of farming as Zachary, Wesley, Elizabeth and Catherine
have all started part time work at the nursery with Zachary committing
to a career in the industry.We invite you for a visit to our friendly community
on any occassion. We continue to strive to meet the quality demands of
our customers as well as producing quantities that can fill the needs of
almost any customer.
Thank you for your continued business.
