Your Investment Deserves the Best Care & Management Possible

Practice Good Silvicultural Methods to Get Highest Performance & Profitability

  • I highly recommend SuperTree Seedlings® Varietals for those superior sites that will give you the maximum return on investment and produce the most sawtimber possible. If you’re going with Varietals you’re going to have to do the necessary work to see that return – provide those seedlings with every opportunity to get the growth potential. You’ve got to be willing to put in the work with proper site management and silviculture to get your best results. In the end, the payoff will be worth the investment and the work.”

  • "Research has shown that our best pine growth is with earlier site prep (starting in about mid June) rather than the current late season practice. Not only do we get better growth response in June, but there are also other benefits from earlier site prep."

  • “I like the updates and information I get in the Treelines emails. I’ll read about a new product or updated data and call the nursery to talk about it. The information lets me know that ArborGen is always working to improve my outcomes, and if I want to ‘see with my own eyes’ they can almost always take me to a test plot. I like that they keep up with all the advancements in seedlings and silviculture.”

A few weeks back, I accompanied a former student of mine, now a professional forester, to a planting site on his company land to inspect both seedling and planting quality. As we arrived on the tract that had been site prepared for its new forest, I noticed something that deeply concerned me.
