    Description

    Forest tree nurseries rely on tight scheduling of operations to deliver vital seedlings to the planting site. Cold storage is required to: (1) prevent winter damage, especially in container seedlings; (2) to maintain planting stock in an inactive condition; and (3) to ensure plant supply for geographically distinct planting sites, a definite requirement for large-scale or internationally operating nurseries.
