Care and Planting of Southern Pines

This booklet is designed to encourage landowners, land managers, county foresters, forestry consultants, and nursery managers to be certain that their seedlings receive proper care. As a reminder, it reviews the elements of seedling care in an idealized reforestation system. For our purposes here, the system begins with lifting and packing in the nursery, includes transportation and storage, and ends when the seedling roots are in proper contact with the soil.
