    The University of Idaho Forest Research Nursery was established in 1909 to grow bareroot (field-grown) tree and shrub seedlings for conservation. In 1982, the bareroot production was phased out and replaced by growing seedlings in containers in greenhouses. The nursery emphasizes teaching, research and service. Students learn about forest planting; scientists conduct research to improve seedling quality, survival and growth; and seedlings are produced each year for the state of Idaho, private industry, and the general public. The 15-acre nursery site is located one mile east of Mountain View Road along Idaho 8 (Troy Highway) on the University of Idaho Parker Farm and consists of a shop, cooler/storage building, three greenhouses, a shadehouse, and a micropropagation facility. The greenhouses and shadehouse have about 13,700 square feet of growing area and can produce about 900,000 seedlings each year. Six acres are enrolled in the Idaho Department of Fish and Game Habitat Improvement Program, with an additional 1.5 acres scheduled to be enrolled in fall 1993. The remainder of the Parker Farm is administered by the College of Agriculture.
