DescriptionThe source of seed is an important consideration in the reforestation program on the National Forests in the North Central Region. Thirty-five seed production areas have been set up in the Region, along the lines proposed by the North Central Forest Experiment Station, to provide control of seed source. Red pine, white pine, shortleaf and loblolly pine, and white spruce areas have been established. Including isolation zones, 1.500 acres are involved. Anticipated average annual yield is about 2,000 pounds of cleaned seed.
