Softwood Seedlings for Reforestation Programs

Scott & Stewart is dedicated to growing quality black, red spruce, white pine and hemlock seedlings. Our seedlings are produced from improved seed purchased from the Nova Scotia Department of Natural Resources. We also grow limited quantities of white pine and hemlock seedlings. Our seedlings are grown in multipot 67 and Jiffy 140 container systems. As well, we grow large container stock for clients who want a larger tree to out-grow the competition and survive damage from the hylobius bark beetle. These seedlings are grown for two seasons in a Jiffy 5150-35 container system. They are approximately 2 feet in height and have a root collar that measures 5 mm in diameter at time of shipping.
