seeds/cones

Descriptor: Treatment
Description: Most forest tree seeds are dormant and must be treated before they will germinate. The dormancy requirement of most commercial tree species can be satisfied by a cold, moist stratification treatment. The seeds are soaked for 24 to 48 hours, and then placed in plastic bags in a refrigerator for a period of 2 to 6 months, depending on the species.
