Wet weather has slowed removal
of tree seedlings from their beds at
the Texas Forest Service nursery
near Alto, but seedlings are still
available for purchase by landown-
ers, noted Tony Simms, nursery
operations manager. All the seed-
lings grown at the nursery are ge-
netically improved stock, said
Seedlings are grown in carefully
prepared beds which are approxi-
mately four feet wide and up to 800
feet in length. At the target stocking
of 27 marketable pine seedlings per
square foot of bed, a four foot by 300-
foot (the length of a football field
without the end zones) planting bed
would contain over 32,000 pine
seedlings. The same bed would
contain about 18,000 marketable
hardwood, or broad-leaved, seed-
lings. The latter usally have a
broader root system, which restricts
the number of seedlings that can be
grown in each bed.
Pine seedlings are grown for use
in timber production and in wind-
breaks. Pine species still available
at $30 per thousand seedlings in-
clude loblolly, shortleaf and slash.
Virginia pines, the species used most
often in Texas for Christmas tree
growning sell for $60 per thousand.
Pines are available in lots of 100
