Nursery Costs and Benefits of Container-Grown Southern Pine Seedlings
Abstract:Loblolly (Pinus taeda L.) and slash pine (P. elliottii Engelm.) seedlings can be grown in Number 2 Styroblock containers in timber-truss greenhouses for essentially the same cost per thousand as bare-root seedlings, if construction of a new nursery is contemplated. Because of the time required to expand a bare-root nursery, every additional dollar spent to expand output using a container facility at the existing location is rewarded with $5.90 in present-worth benefits.
