Description: The long-predicted surge in demand tor southern hardwoods is now being felt. Wood-using industries feel it in dwindling supplies of raw material; the forester feels it in increasing hardwood mill quotas, and you nurserymen feel it in increasing demands for hardwood seedling production. The hardwood boom has presented us with many problems. some of which we cannot yet answer. My intent today is to take one problem area, the handling of hardwood seed, and discuss the experience we have had in this area at the Southern Hardwood Laboratory. I will briefly touch upon collection, extraction and cleaning, storage, . and stratification, and tell you where I think our future research effort should beat be placed.
