DescriptionDoes planting stock that has been kept in storage survive and grow as well as freshly dug stock? This question is important because the ground at a forest nursery may still be frozen when spring planting time arrives in the warmer parts of the region. This means that seedlings for spring planting need to be dug in the fall, kept in cold storage over winter, and shipped to planting sites in the spring. If this procedure is not satisfactory, it will be necessary to ship seedlings in the fall and heel them in at the planting site, or build new nurseries in the warmer areas.
