Title: Tree Seedling Planting
Post by: Out On A Limb on November 22, 2005, 06:54:01 AM
Would anyone be able to recommend someone that is experienced in tree seedling planting?  I'm in the Marion/Tustin area.

The person I have been using recently passed away.

Down here in the Ga./Fl.  area, the first person we will contact is the county forester.  He usually has a list of Timber Prep.  companies in the state.  These companies prepare as well as replant the land.  Many of them are the trailing "departments" of a larger Timber Harvesting company.

I'm not sure where you are located, but an Illinois firm that does planting can be found at

http://www.midwestseedlingsupply.com/

I haven't actually used them, but have heard good things about them.

Contact Rick Lucas, the Osceola County Conservation District Forester. He may be able to help you with someone in the near area.
