Jerry; Check with the USDA Soil Conservation office, They either will have one to use or rent, or they will know where to find one. Best of luck. Frank.

I see you're in AR. Are you close to any Weyerhaeuser pine plantations? If so, your best bet would be to hire one of the local tree planting contractors or one of their workers. I've never seen pine trees planted any other way but by hand. A good tree planter can plant 2,000 trees a day.

Billy, have you ever seen how they replanted after Mt. St. Helens erupted? An airplane flew over the area and dropped "tree bombs", little self-contained seedling packages that burrowed into the ground. Probably a little expensive for 10 acres though.

No, Ken, I didn't see that. I bet that was a sight to behold.

Wish you were closer. I have an old one left over from the depression days when they have work crews. Basically it is a double wing plow followed by a metal seat for someone to stuff in seedlings and then a reverse plow an opening so not to bend over the planted tree.

I think Hardwood has you covered but many states have a publication by their Dept of Agriculture with ads in it. You probably can search your State's Dept of Agri web site and find it. Often you will find people who offer such services in there.

Jerry, as much as I hate to say this................ you need about 500 Mexicans planting the seedlings. I was forced to throw out about 40,000 International Paper Super Tree seedlings earlier this summer because I just did not have the time or wear with all to plant them. When you plant a seedling every 10 square feet; that adds up to a LOT of trees to plant. What is REALLY frustrating is that if you don't plant them with seedling protector tubes, the deer will decimate them.

Come on Randy. 3 or 4 good Mexican tree planters could knock 10 acres out in a day easy. Smile

I was making a bit of "Silvicultural" jest Billy. ;O) In my case, I never stood a chance as my wife called me from work and told me that International Paper had a refridgerated tractor trailer load of seedlings they were throwing out. I figured I would pickup a box or two. (each box hold 1,000 seedlings) I ended up taking about 40 boxes thinking I might be able to give them away to my neighbors. I didn't get many takers.
