Description: This publication, a compilation of 20 papers concerning nursery production of longleaf pine seedlings in containers for reforestation, is a summary of longleaf pine workshops held in 1999 and 2001. The Longleaf Alliance and the USDA Southern Research Station and Southern Region Cooperative Forestry organized the first workshop in 1999. It was held in Jesup, Georgia, on September 21-23, 1999, and 15 papers were contributed. The University of Georgia Cooperative Extension Service hosted the second meeting on January 16-18, 2001, in Tifton, Georgia, and 5 papers are included from that effort. Papers are presented in an order that reflects a typical growing season and include information on nursery start-up costs; seed collection, processing, and treatment; irrigation and fertilization practices; container specifications; target seedling characteristics; water quality and irrigation concerns; experiences of small and large operators; pest control; marketing; and field planting.

Keywords: Forest tree nurseries, Pinus palustris, reforestation, seed and seedling physiology, southern pines
