The FC owns 3 forest nurseries with a total capacity to produce up to 27 000 000 transplants each year. These nurseries supply planting material for planting and restocking on the public forest estate in England and Scotland. The nurseries also act as the agents to the FC to purchase certain categories of material where they experience shortfalls in internal production.
The aim of the FC is to supply its estate with planting material that minimises the overall cost of tree establishment and maximises the value of woodlands. The specification that we give for planting material covers both the size and the condition of plants at the time of delivery. Suppliers will need to demonstrate that their nursery systems follow industry best practice in the processing, the storage and the transportation of plants to site.
