Preparing Seedlings


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.
