Nursery Practices in Cold Storage of Conifer Seedlings in Canada and the United States: A Survey

Cold storage of conifer seedlings is of topical interest, as reflected in widespread discussions at recent meetings of nurserymen (2, 3, 4, 5). Proper storage enables foresters and nurserymen to improve their operations through better planning, control, and ordering of work schedules than was formerly possible. Research in cold storage of conifer seedlings is the subject of a detailed review published elsewhere (Hocking and Nyland, 1971, Res. Rep. 6 Applied Forestry Research Institute, Syracuse, N.Y.), which includes references to other reviews. The most recent survey of nursery practice in cold storage was conducted in March, 1965. Since much has happened recently, we surveyed current storage practice hoping to detect present trends.
