    Description

    Planting tree seeds at the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources Penn Nursery, Spring Mills, Pennsylvania occurs in spring and fall. Seeds acquired for these plantings come from 3 sources. The first source is our own orchards, which were developed to provide “improved” seeds. Improved seeds are produced from scion material collected from trees selected for various characteristics and grafted onto rootstock. The second source is from general collections that are collected by forestry personnel from various forest districts.We have developed a barter system with these districts; they receive credit from our wooden and plastic sign shops for any seeds they bring in. The third source of seeds is from privately owned seed companies, which we use only when the other 2 sources do not meet our needs.
