DescriptionAlthough forest planting has been carried on for more than a quarter of a century in the Northern Rocky Mountain Region, the ultimate in planting practice has not yet been attained. Information on several phases of planting work has been obtained by studying all available plantation records. Results of the study are presented together with a brief description of the planting practice used in the region and a discussion of factors affecting mortality with reference to methods of increasing survival.
