Tree planting is a familiar forestry practice for many Mississippians. Have you ever wondered where those seedlings come from?

The forester must pay close attention to soil fertility, irrigation, pests, and many other things. No matter how much is known, however, a forest tree manager is always learning. Many aspects of soil management, pest control, and tree growth are best learned by experience, and that’s one reason making and operating a small forest nursery is a good 4-H activity.
