George Tsugawa

George and Mable Tsugawa

Tsugawa Nursery is a family owned and operated business. The Tsugawa family began berry farming in Woodland, Washington in 1947. George and Mable Tsugawa were married in 1950 and raised six children. The Tsugawa family worked hard together to make their farm successful, initially growing strawberries.

In January 1981, the Tsugawa family purchased a defunct nursery in Woodland. They opened Tsugawa Nursery in March of 1981 with very little nursery stock but plenty of vision for things to come. The Nursery has grown and become well established as the area's best place to shop for garden and landscape plants and supplies.

Tsugawa's goal is to provide the area's best products along with exceptional customer service including special services not offered by other nurseries. We offer reasonable landscape design services and delivery.

November 13, 1926 ~ August 27, 2011

Mable Kazuko Tsugawa, age 84, of Woodland, WA, peacefully passed away at home on Aug. 27, 2011. She was born in The Dalles, OR, on Nov. 13, 1926, daughter of Kensuki and Junko Taniguchi. In 1955, Mable and husband George moved to Woodland, WA, establishing and participating in Tsugawa Farms, raising a variety of berries.

They raised six loving children: Martin (deceased), Mary Lynn (Archer), Lori (Whaley), Karen, Dan and Brian. Mable was involved supporting her children including Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and school and sports activities. Mable loved her family, the arts and her Japanese heritage. After becoming an 'empty nester', she opened Tsugawa Nursery in 1981 transforming the business into the present thriving enterprise. Recently retired, she passed the baton to the next generation of Tsugawas. She is survived by George, husband of 61 years; five children; 11 grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; and sister, Yuriko Tamoto of Vancouver, BC.

A memorial service will be held at First Church of God, 3300 NE 78th St., Vancouver, WA on Sept. 3, 2011 at 12:00 p.m. Please sign Mable's guest book at:
