  • "The SuperTree Seedlings® Varietals I planted have been a great investment. I’ve been really pleased with their growth, and my plan is to plant more of them. As a forestry consultant, I also recommend them to my customers."

  • “We have been using Varietal seedlings for about 10 years now, and have about 2,000 acres planted in them. I can tell you that they are getting a noticeably good gain over the 2nd gen trees in height, diameter, straightness and limb quality. They are just better looking trees, and the key takeaway is realizing that the big return is going to be on getting more trees into the sawlog class. When you’re getting more product in the higher value – thinning more chipsaw than pulpwood at the first thinning and more sawlogs than chipsaw at the second thinning – harvesting more poles – that’s when Varietals really pay off. Straighter trees with less knots and forks are going to give you a higher return on your investment, and that’s what impresses me about Varietals. We’ve planted some every year for the last 10 years and I use them on my own personal property. I’m high on them myself.”
