Seedling Selection and Quality

Species selection can make the difference between success and failure. We can choose the species that are most adaptable to your climate, elevation, mine soil, slope aspect and locale. We partner with nurseries that provide superior seedlings that are specially grown to produce higher survival on mine lands.

Handling & Planting Seedlings

Seedlings are stored in refrigeration until the day of planting. Our crews are experienced hardwood planters and plant the seedlings with the utmost care and responsibility. Each tree is selected and planted to match the character of the site conditions, which increases seedling survival.
