Changing of the Guard

Sons of JHH Boyd, Fernando Campbell ‘FC’ Boyd, Sr. (1888) and James Reed ‘JR’ Boyd (1890) purchase Forest Nursery and Seed Company back from A.P. Hill and become partners at Forest Nursery and Seed Company – Boyd Brothers – working alongside their father until his death on February 21, 1924 (learn more about JHH Boyd). In the years from 1914 to 1925 the company enjoys substantial growth, and during this period the “and Seed” is gradually omitted from the company name. In 1925, Forest Nursery Company is incorporated with F. C. Boyd, President; John L. Colville, Vice President; J. R. Boyd, Secretary; and D. P. Henegar, Treasurer.
