Description: A container reforestation system has been researched and developed in Hawaii which results in consistently high survival and growth rates for eucalyptus seedlings. Mean survival of containerized saligna eucalyptus (Eucalyptus saligna Smith) seedlings is 90 percent with a standard deviation of 4. Because transplant shock is minimal, seedlings begin to grow quickly. Mean survival of bare-root saligna eucalyptus seedlings was only 56 percent with a standard deviation of 32, and about 70 percent of the seedlings suffered stem dieback. The containerized system includes the nursery, transport, and field phases of reforestation.
