ArborGen is part of our trusted team at Hall Timberlands. We’ve planted ArborGen seedlings for as long as I can remember and have been very happy with them.  We plant for maximum return on investment, so in the high-quality soil, we’re starting to plant Varietals. The quicker you can get a stand to sawtimber, the better.

We needed a partner to help us meet the requirements of each stand-level forest management objective. The staff at ArborGen works with us to understand our site-specific requirements to help us achieve specific goals. Their expertise and personalized attention at every step of the way make them the perfect seedling partner. They go out of their way to suit my schedule, find me trees if I’m short at the end of planting and help me to resolve any issues that might arise. I feel more confident knowing that If I need my Reforestation Advisor, he’s always right there.

When choosing seedlings, I need a partner with strong survival rates. I find ArborGen hardwoods are healthier looking and have more lateral roots, better root systems and better survival rates than products I’ve purchased elsewhere. I’ve used the same planting crews and techniques to plant both ArborGen seedlings and competing products and the proof is in the survival. I always get a better than 90% survival rate from ArborGen hardwoods.

As a tree planter, my primary concern is avoiding seedling mortality. As a long-time ArborGen customer, I have only had one issue with mortality. ArborGen replaced the seedlings no questions asked, and gave me extra to cover my labor costs. They always do whatever they can to make things right. They are great to work with and always accommodating when I have a special need that arises.
