    Description

    In Canada, forest land ownership and management is largely under provincial jurisdiction, and forestry operations are mainly conducted on public land and not on private land. This public ownership has exerted a profound impact on the development of reforestation policies and nursery technology in Canada. Collectively, about 650 million seedlings are planted annually in Canada's forests. In excess of 90% of this production is grown as container seedlings, mostly by commercial nurseries.
