DescriptionEach year forest nurserymen are faced with the problem of estimating the number of seedlings they can ship from their nurseries. Since errors in the estimates may seriously affect the planting programs, during the past 2 years the Southern Forest Experiment Station has been attempting to improve nursery-inventory procedure. The inventory method that appears most promising consists of making two estimates one of the total number of seed lings in the entire nursery, or a natural subdivision of it; and another of the percentage of plantable seedlings. With the data from these two estimates, the number of plantable seedlings in the nursery (or subdivision) can be calculated readily .
