The Tennessee Department of Forestry 2013/2014 seedling catalog is now available. New for this year are seedlings available in quantities as low as 25 pieces. Costs vary but for standard seedlings like oak and persimmon are $33 for 25, wildlife varieties are $40 for 25. Discounts available for larger quantities. Delivery is free to your county. Most sell out at some point so order as soon as you know what you need. I'm going to buy some Southern Crabapple. Link is: http://www.state.tn.us/agriculture/publications/forestry/seedlingcatalog.pdf

Once you get the seedlings, how long will they survive (in pots) before planting?

What's the typical process of getting in them ground?

I'm interested in this as well...can they be safely nurtured in pots for some amount of time until ready to put in the ground?

The seedlings are sent in waxy paper bags with the roots damp. I was given 200 pine seedlings that I couldn't plant for two weeks in late spring so I put them in a 5-gallon bucket with wet dirt and they all survived until planting. It is best to plant them soon after receipt if possible. If you receive them in cold weather you can store them in the waxy bags in a shady area, because they are stored in a cooler for months after being put in the bags. I plant mine with a KBC planting bar but there are better planting bars available. If you are only planting 100 or so a shovel works well. Don't dig a hole, just create a slit to set the roots in and close the void around the roots. The slit needs to be deep enough so the roots don't "J" at the bottom. Professional planters carry the seedlings in canvas bags on their waist but I use a 5-gallon bucket of water with the seedlings so I can take my time.

I saved about 25 sawtooths and 25 chestnuts out of 900 that we ordered and planted this Jan/Feb to pot up and plant this fall at another farm. I potted them up in 5 gallon buckets and so far their doing good. The chestnuts are definitely more finicky but the sawtooths are strong growing trees...

Keep in mind TDF is working to have an online order and pay option in the future. Also, I've seen seedlings live for a month and a half in the bags they are shipped in and survive.

Of the "wildlife species" available, anyone know the best to plant for whitetails?

The chestnuts, crab apples, persimmons, and plums from the ones they have listed. Some of the oaks as well.

For your situation, I would focus on the crab apples, persimmons and plums around the openings you already have.

I have planted over 2000 the last two yrs with help from a few friends, sawtooths, pines,dogwoods. I can tell you all about a dribble tool. Great trees for the price, but if buying sawtooths, I would go ahead and buy the preminum sized trees. Well worth it.

They have pretty good stuff. Cant beat the prices. I like to pot the hardwood trees and then plant the following year. Having pretty close to 100% success rate. I would rate the pine seedlings at fair quality.

I am going to get the hazelnuts. Anything that tastes that good has to be high on Mr. Deer's food list. I will plant 25 of them in a rectangle fashion on my lease, I know a place. Humping fertilizer & lime in won't be much fun but my Kids need the exercise.

Anyone have any experience with Hazelnuts and Deer?
