Description: Bareroot nursery practices that maximize root development and root growth have been studied and documented over a number of years. Each nursery, however, has its own unique combination of climate, soils, species, and stocktypes for which site specific cultural practices are necessary. J. Herbert Stone Nursery, a USDA Forest Service nursery in Central Point, OR, has completed a variety of production trials to adapt general cultural practices to its site. These trials resulted in 1) developing a strategy to maintain high soil porosity through the application of organic matter and tillage measures; 2) sowing seeds earlier in the winter for 1 + 0 stocktypes; 3) lowering seedbed densities from 267 seedlings/m2 (25 seedlings/ft2) to between 161 and 195 seedlings/m2 (15 and 18 seedlings/ft2); 4) transplanting seedlings in early fall instead of spring; and 5) developing a miniplug + 1 stocktype.

Keywords: seedling culture, root volume, Pseudotsuga menziesii, Pinus ponderosa, root culture
