    Description

    Container production of hardwood seedlings requires larger cavities, more space, and the ability to easily sort seedlings (as compared to conifers) very early during the germination phase of production. This presentation demonstrates the most productive system, based upon past experience, to commercially produce container hardwoods. The container system of choice is called “Old Native Tube” or “Vic Pots” and was developed and manufactured in Australia. Seedling target sizes are 18 to 24 in (45 to 60 cm) in height and 5 to 7 mm root collar diameter (RCD).
