DescriptionForest seedling production in British Columbia began with bareroot production in the 1930s and has evolved to be 95'/0+ containerized entering the new millennium. Until the late 1970s most production was limited to government facilities. Currently private industry produces 85% of seedlings planted in British Columbia. Production levels are at approximately 300+ million seedlings annually, with 225 million destined for British Columbia lands and 75+ million seedlings are contract grown for customers in other Canadian provinces and US states.
