Forestry Tree Nursery Practices in the United States
Abstract:Results are presented of a study made to determine the different tree species produced by forest nurseries, their order of magnitude, and the methods used to grow them. Current practices are compared to those used a decade ago. Coating of seeds with bird repellants, increased use of soil sterilants, and a new technique for stratifying seeds constitute the more important changes. Major problems at nurseries have changed little since 1954. Soil fertility, weed control, and seedling diseases continue to be the most critical areas for additional research.
