Containerized Seedlings in Western Reforestation

The full text article is temporarily unavailable.

We apologise for the inconvenience. Please try again later.

Technology for growing seedlings in containers is well advanced, and such stock is used extensively for planting in the West. Installed production capacity approaches 100 million seedlings per year, and more is planned. The shaped root system facilitates planting, especially among logging slash or in rocky soil. Containerized seedlings generally cost more to produce and transport but usually survive better than bare-root stock and make faster early growth.
