Description: Forest tree nurseries in the Western United States, the region immediately west of the Great Plains, currently produce over 250 million trees per year. Recent Federal legislation requires the Forest Service to increase its efforts in reforestation of nonstocked forest land, and some States now require owners of forest land to provide for reforestation immediately after an area is cut over. These actions will increase the need for more seedlings and create a demand for greater production from forest nurseries. To attain this goal, uniform, vigorous, high-quality seedlings must be produced and disease losses kept to a minimum.
