  •  Thanks for the informative diary. (4+ / 0-)

    I spend many days in naturally regenerated forests, and in planted ones. Seldom do I put much thought into how those individual seeds germinated.

    But when I encounter locations suitable for trees to grow (manmade or natural openings), something is usually growing there. Those millions of seeds, with varying germination requirements depending on species, will bring new growth to suitable sites very quickly.

    •  The best book i have found on the subject is (5+ / 0-)

      'Plant Propagation' by Kester, a book i found  for 10 bucks at a used bookstore 20 years ago.

      The updated version, HERE is very expensive but can possibly be found at well funded libraries.

      Hopefully, most of this info has found its way to the web, altho i haven't a link.

      Great diary-the impending arrival of Earth Day on the 22nd has prompted some important diaries- kudos to everyone who has participated.
