Forest Nursery Seedling Production in the United States—Fiscal Year 2020

Forest nursery production for the 2020 planting season was more than 1.25 billion tree seedlings (including about 18.5 million container seedlings imported from Canada). Approximately 74 percent of seedlings were produced as bareroot stock. Only a small portion (3 percent) of seedlings were hardwood species. Seedling production in some States was affected by the coronavirus pandemic which left some nurseries unable to lift and ship their stock. Based on this total number of seedlings and estimated planting densities in each State, more than 2.4 million ac (977,542 ha) were planted. Approximately 86 percent of production and planting occurred in the southern States.
