lifting, grading, & storage

Descriptor: Harvesting
Description: The time period from when the seedling are lifted until they are outplanted is one of the most critical in the entire reforestation sequence. The tiny fibrous roots are especially prone to drying and can be killed by a few minutes of exposure to heat or direct sunlight. The lifting crew includes several people that are assigned to keep the seedling boxes wet until they can be moved to the pre-storage cooler.
