The millions of trees that the COs
planted in British Columbia all started out as seedlings on
a tree farm. The tree farm had many long beds of soil such as
are shown in the video. The COs planted the seeds and nurtured
them until the seedlings were strong enough to survive on their
own. Then the seedlings were packed into bags and given to the
COs to plant.
