A Systems Approach to Forest Tree Seedling Production - A New Concept

A concept of an integrated systems approach to sowing and harvesting 50-foot-wide forest seedling nursery beds is presented. Basic nursery operations of bed preparation, sowing, bed tending, seedling care, and harvesting use a moveable carriage that operates on cogged tracks. The systems concept is based on a goal of harvesting 36 million seedlings within 10 work days. Time sharing of the harvesting equipment should be possible on a weather cline with a resultant large scale operating cost savings for forest industries.
