This Bulletin discusses the importance of nursery practice and the current methods employed. Only coniferous species are dealt with; broadleaved trees occupy a relatively small area in the new plantations. The bulletin shows that important improvements can be obtained by attention to tilth conditions (largely governed by the time of sowing), by treatment of the seed before sowing, and by careful regulation of the depth and density of sowing. Losses in the seedling stage are frequently numerous, but can be reduced by efficient methods of shelter in summer and winter, as well as by control of insect and fungus pests.
