Planting This Year – Planning for Next Year

Seedling Planting Arborgen Tree Seedlings Treelines November 2022 1St Edition

Our nurseries are gearing up for another busy planting season and have already started lifting seedlings. Tree planters and landowners are scheduling seedling pickups and deliveries and staging workers. And everyone is watching weather forecasts to make sure the timing is right.

With the 2022 planting season just getting underway, it may seem a little early to start thinking about and planning for the 2023 season. However, reforestation professionals anticipate increased demand for tree seedlings, especially in the southeast.

During this year’s seedling growing season, Coastal Loblolly families sold out by mid-Summer, and customers scrambled to find any Longleaf seedlings. Due to high demand, the past few years have seen a south-wide shortage of Longleaf pine seedlings and a shortage of Loblolly seedlings for most areas. As for Hardwoods, Oak inventory was depleted well before Fall.

Start planning now to meet with your forestry-trained Reforestation Advisor to determine seedlings to meet your needs. Seedling inventories for next year are currently in the planning phase, and conversations with Landowners about their plans and goals are happening. As a result, a large portion of our crop is already committed. Make sure you schedule a time to get your order in early. Contact your Reforestation Advisor to discuss what you need to grow the best forest for your future.
