National Seed Laboratory

The Forest Service National Native Plants Policy promotes the use of native plant materials for the re-vegetation, restoration, and rehabilitation of native plant communities to provide for the conservation of ecosystem diversity (Forest Service Manual 2070.3). Most native plants used for ecosystem conservation and restoration are propagated exclusively from seeds. Sufficient quantities of seeds are needed to restore and sustain native plant communities that are increasingly affected by invasive species, pest infestations, wildfire, and climate change.
