Bioprism Advanced Vertical Greenhouse (AVG)
Utilizing industry-leading horticulture technology, Wild + Pine is growing Canada’s future forests while building Canada’s future greenhouses – learn more below.
At the core of our business, transformative change drives our everyday actions. Wild + Pine is just a small piece of the global puzzle that challenges itself to solve our population’s greatest threat.
Although small, our organization takes moonshots. Acting on climate change is the moonshot of our generation that will require the most creative and dynamic approaches to solve. Tireless experimentation is the hallmark of our practice – a practice Wild + Pine optimistically drives forward every hour to further build an ecosystem of contagious innovation.
Advanced Vertical Greenhouse (AVG)
Bioprism AVG is a vertical, 100% artificial commercial growing environment for native tree and shrub seedlings. With the ability to produce 3x the crops in optimized growing conditions, Wild + Pine is deploying our talent and technologies to meet the rising demand for sustainability products and programs. Bioprism AVG is the first commercial deployment of its kind for tree seedling production in Canada.

Tailored environmental control for optimized plant physiology through geographically specific light spectrums to mimic any solar spectrum globally.
Even nutrient delivery system with closed loop irrigation for effective water recycling and 90% efficiency.
Intelligent and automated environmental control through cloud-based systems enables precision management and risk mitigation.
In the news:
Accurately measuring and building forest inventory is a resource and time intensive endeavor, a practice magnified by Canada’s vast boreal forest. Exploring efficiencies often involves costly implements such as aircraft or operationally restrictive tools like drones, bearing a threshold of granularity and accuracy. In 2019, Wild + Pine began exploring tools that put technology in the hands of practitioners on the ground, with a focus on balancing operational efficiency and precision data collection.
Not only do our tools and methods remove human error and interpretation variance; they allow the forest to come to life on our client’s desktop. Merging technology, artificial intelligence, and automation – our practice builds the digitization and sustainable management capability of our forests, Canada’s greatest asset.
Ethylene Glycol, or aircraft de-icing fluid, contaminates surface runoff in every major northern airport across the globe. Through its natural anaerobic decomposition, Methane is produced and presents a complex, annual challenge. In partnership with Natural Resources Canada and Switch Engineering, Wild + Pine Sustainability developed a hardwood shrub species that effectively stabilizes and degrades Ethylene Glycol within the plant, eliminating the production of Methane.
Leveraging nature-based solutions such as phytoremediation, we encourage and further strengthen our ability to solve global climate challenges.
We’re leading the sustainable path forward with world-class thought leadership, creating a remarkable innovation ecosystem. Our strength is in our partnerships. Innovation is in our results.
