Carlton Plants is a wholesale grower specializing in bareroot trees (shade, ornamental and fruit), ornamental shrubs, rootstocks and tissue culture.  We are pleased to announce our Internship Program for Spring & Summer 2017.  The program is designed to provide professional education and hands on experience to college students.  This is paid on the job training that includes exposure to all phases of bareroot production - from the tissue culture lab and greenhouse to the field and eventually to the customer.  Additionally, specialized internships in Propagation are available.
Northwest Oregon is a wonderful place to spend a few months and provides a unique opportunity to apply the knowledge gleaned from the classroom. Weekends may be used to enjoy the fabulous recreational activities throughout the Pacific Northwest.
