Seedling Selection Guidelines for Forest Landowners
The selection of tree seedlings for reforestation or the conversion of open land to woodlands may only occur a few times over the ownership of a property. Therefore, making sure that the right seedlings are purchased is a significant step in woodland management. When selecting seedlings, the factors to consider are landowner objectives, soils and other site characteristics, seedling sources and availability, and seedling cost.
