The Hammer Mill as an Important Nursery Implement
Abstract:The importance of hardwood planting stock in American forestry has increased greatly during the past few years. Those responsible for the production of this kind of stock soon found that many of the standard practices for extracting and cleaning coniferous tree seeds were not applicable to hardwood tree seeds. It was found necessary, therefore, to develop entirely new methods for extracting the seeds of hardwood trees if this was to be done economically and efficiently. The use of the hammer mill to extract and clean hardwood seeds, as a seed scarifier, and for pulverizing peat and compost is described in the following article.
