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.

Our clients include banks, law firms, accounting firms, trust departments, timber companies and non-industrial private landowners, and in the past, meeting their demands sometimes felt overwhelming.  ArborGen is an integral part of our team because they allow us to choose seedlings to fit any client’s objectives and budget, and they provide the service, information and follow up to make certain those seedlings are going to perform their best and get the maximum return.

What are my various genetic seedling choices and what are the key differences among them?

No longer are pine seedlings a commodity purchase so it’s important to know your options. Research and development have brought many choices for every landowner and the ability to improve the return on investment on their pine forest.

As loblolly pine is the most important tree for commercial reforestation in the U.S. South, there are two other options for this important species in addition to Varietals: conventional Open-Pollinated (OP) and Mass Control Pollinated (MCP®).

What is the appropriately adapted seed source for my planting location

Not knowing the seed source of your pine seedlings can be devastating. Pine seedlings produced from seed with Florida parentage won’t survive or reach their full potential on a site in Virginia. Experienced seedling providers such as ArborGen can provide the correct geographic seed source and genetic performance data to landowners.

What kind of customer support should I expect regarding my pine seedlings, before, during and after the sale?

Make sure the reforestation company you work with asks you about your goals for you and your family and helps you develop a plan to achieve those. They should communicate with you in a clear, transparent way the facts and data that support their claims.

Ask about their quality control and tracking systems to make sure they are delivering you the high quality seedlings you expect.

They should be able to deliver what you want, where you want it, when you want it. And your reforestation company should commit to being there for advice and support after planting until first thinning. You are in this for the long haul – they should be too.
