Abstract: These proceedings are a compilation of 20 papers that were presented at the regional meetings of the forest and conservation nursery associations and the Intertribal Nursery Council meeting in the United States in 2011. The Joint Meeting of the Southern Forest Nursery Association and Northeastern Forest and Conservation Nursery Association was held at the Pullman Plaza Hotel, Huntington, WV, July 25 to 28, 2011. Subject matter for the technical sessions included history and current status of tree planting and nursery production, mine reclamation research and implementation, American chestnut restoration, and soil fumigation regulations and alternatives. Field trips included afternoon tours of the Kentucky Division of Forestry's Morgan County Tree Nursery in West Liberty, KY, and a mining site near Dunlow, Wayne County, WV. The Annual Meeting of the Western Forest and Conservation Nursery Association was held at the Hilton Garden Inn Cherry Creek in Denver, CO on August 16 to 18, 2011. Subject matter for the technical sessions included development of local genotypes for native plants, marketing strategies, nursery techniques and products, restoration strategies, insect and disease management, and nursery phytosanitation. Afternoon field trips included tours of Denver Botanic Gardens and the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge, both in Denver, CO. The Intertribal Nursery Council Meeting was held at the Pechanga Casino, Temecula, CA on September 12 to 15, 2011. The meeting was hosted by the Pechanga Band of Luiseño Indians and USDA Forest Service. Subject matter for the technical sessions included propagation strategies for culturally important plant species, collaboration for conservation and education, seedling storage, and seed viability. Two short workshops on growing media and containers were also given. Field trips included an afternoon tour of the Pechanga Native Plant Nursery, with optional concurrent tours of the Cultural Resources Department, the Great Oak Tree, and the Cove Village. Additionally, there was an all-day field trip with tours of Mockingbird Nurseries, Inc., Indian Canyons - Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians, Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains National Monument Visitor Center, and the Palms to Pines Scenic Highway.
