Containerized Longleaf Pine and Shortleaf Pine

Many landowners across Virginia are starting to look for ways to accelerate early growth in their pine plantations and containerized seedlings may be a great way to do that. Container seedlings grow at a rapid pace when planted at the correct time. The best time to plant bareroot seedlings in Virginia is February to March because of cold weather. However, container seedlings are best planted in the fall and the overall planting window is much more extended. Pristine roots, larger seedling size, intact root ball and earlier planting all contribute to rapid growth.

VDOF is pleased to announce containerized shortleaf pine and longleaf pine.

All container seedlings will be packaged by November 1 and will need to be picked up by mid-December.

These species must be picked up at the Sussex Nursery.
