Abstract

The increasing interest in reforestation work throughout the States has resulted in the establishment of a number of State Forest Nurseries. In order to carry on an extensive reforestation project it has been found that more rapid progress may be made by securing quantity production at a low cost through the maintenance of State nurseries. Most timber planters realize that it is necessary to keep the initial cost of planting operations down to a minimum in case the planting investment is to show satisfactory returns. This means that trees must be supplied at a very small cost per acre or extensive reforestation will not be attempted.
