02. Site Selection

Selecting a site for a permanent forest tree nursery is not only a difficult task, but it is also the most important step in the production of tree seedlings. Good nursery sites are rare and are often superior, high-priced farm lands. Failure to select a favorable site will result in unsatisfactory production of some species and will sooner or later add to the cost of one or more of the nursery operations.
