Description: A brief history of nursery production of forest tree seedlings in Ontario is presented. The industry dates back to 1904, when the first nursery in the province was established. From 1922 to 1958, eleven additional nurseries were built, the majority of which were situated in northern Ontario. Although the original experiments with containerized seedlings were conducted in 1965, it took more than 15 years for this type of production to become operational. In 1981, the provincial government provided funding for the establishment of private tree seedling nurseries. Today, there are 34 private nurseries in production in the province. Only four of the original government nurseries remain in operation as private enterprises. Containerized seedlings now comprise 80% of all seedling production in Ontario.

Keywords: bareroot nursery, container nursery, LUSTR, stocktypes, containers, tree seedling research
