Center for Forest Nursery and Seedling Research
The Center for Forest Nursery and Seedling Research facility, in operation since 1909, is a seedling operation that grows more than 60 species of trees and shrubs for reforestation, windbreaks, wildlife habitat and restoration, and Christmas tree production. The nursery and the corresponding programs provide research findings, teaching opportunities, and quality seedlings for use and study by the Palouse community.
