Nursery and Planting Practices in the South

As I mentioned today, nursery and planting problems in the South are entirely different than they are in the West. All stock grown is 1-0 with the exception of white pine,and there are only a few million of those grown in the South each year. Some red cedar is grown primarily for nursery stock or maybe for an occasional farmer who wants some for a wind break or fenceposts; and a very small amount of Fraser fir or Norway spruce is grown for Christmas trees, but that probably amounts to less than a million trees a year for the whole South.
