Tree Bundle Conveyor

When the production of tree planting stock for the Northwest Oregon District was transferred from the Corvallis Nursery to the Elkton Nursery, the round trip was increased from 120 to 380 miles. New problems in time and handling resulted. A refrigerated truck, which could hold 300 M seedlings, was purchased so the trees could be kept cool. The trees are left in the truck overnight and are transferred into the tree storage houses the next day.
