Successful Direct Seeding of Northern Conifers on Shallow-Water-Table Areas
Abstract:In most instances direct seeding of conifers as a method of reforesting cutover land has not been considered a practical and satisfactory substitute for planting. This paper mentions an exception to the rule and presents data which indicate that sites with shallow water tables can successfully be direct-seeded even in years of severe drought.
