    Description

    Bottomland forest restoration has become an area of interest in the last 10 to 15 years due to large scale bottomland flooding. Seed sources for large heavy seeded species such as the various native bottomland oaks are nonexistent, thus planting seedlings is needed to increase the proportion of heavy seeded trees to diversify bottomland forests. Nursery-grown bareroot seedlings are not usually competitive and do not survive well in areas with heavy vegetation and grass, especially where herbicides cannot be used for competition control. Larger container-grown seedlings may be more competitive than bareroot seedlings in afforesting productive bottomlands.
