    Description

    Concern has been noted over the lack of qualified applicants for vacancies in forest nursery positions. The University of Idaho Center for Forest Nursery and Seedling Research is uniquely qualified to address the issue of training given its faculty, staff, and resources. The keystone resource in this regard is the Franklin H. Pitkin Forest Nursery, a seedling production facility that operationally grows up to 500,000 plants per year for forestry, conservation, and restoration use in the Inland Northwest. This facility has an on-site research laboratory for conducting seedling quality assessment, and is located near the main campus of the University of Idaho.
