Capacity of the nursery is 800,000 plants. With the construction of another section of lath house in fall, 1978, or spring, 1979, capacity will increase to about 1,100,000. Species produced are: white fir; Douglas-fir; sugar, Scotch, ponderosa, bishop, Coulter, Brutia, and Monterey pine; coast and Sierra redwood; Arizona cypress; toyon; red bud; red gum, ironbark, manna, and dwarf blue gum eucalyptus; fremontia; and incense-cedar. Seedlings are grown as one year stock except for Scotch pine which is groan for two years. Propagation is entirely by direct seeding into containers. Containers are 1.5" x 1.5" x 6" in size (about 13 cu. in.). They are square, open bottom tubes made of 25 mil, black, high density polyethylene.
