Chapter 16 - Lifting, Storing, and Transporting Southern Pine Seedlings

Tree seedlings are living plants with specific desirable morphology and physiology, and monetary value. Stock performance in the field depends on seedlings being lifted, sorted, packaged, stored, and transported in environments that maintain physiological quality. Indoors or out, temperature and moisture conditions, and care in handling by workers and with machines, are of utmost importance. Maintaining seedling quality from nursery to field requires planning, proper facilities, trained crews, and close coordination between nursery manager and regeneration forester.
