Seedling Performance Metrics: A Standardized Monitoring Approach

Planting seedlings is a significant investment. To assure success and minimize costs, the consumer needs to monitor seedling quality and field performance. A comprehensive monitoring program allows the consumer to identify issues in the nursery and the field and make adjustments as needed. PotlatchDeltic has established nursery inspections, root growth potential tests, box audits, garden plots, and field transects to evaluate seedling quality. The data generated from these monitoring activities is essential for assuring an efficient and successful reforestation program. This paper was presented at the Joint Annual Meeting of the Western Forest and Conservation Nursery Association and the Intermountain Container Seedling Growers Association (Coeur d’Alene, ID, October 25–26, 2018).
