nursery operations

Descriptor: Management
Description: Because of the frequent use of heavy equipment during periods when the soil is wet, soil compaction is a serious and reoccurring problem in forest nurseries. Many nurseries "deep rip" their soils with long shanks during the rest year. This operation is often done immediately after the organic matter application so that the sawdust can be incorporated throughout the soil profile, and prevent the formation of soil pans.
