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 2012. The Joint Meeting of the Southern Forest Nursery Association and Northeastern Forest and Conservation Nursery Association was held at the Sheraton Read House Hotel, Chattanooga, TN, July 16 to 19, 2012. Subject matter for the technical sessions included southern nursery history, nursery insect and disease management, water quality, chilling hour review, root architecture, and soil fumigation regulations and alternatives. Field trips included tours of the Native Forest Nursery, in Chatsworth, GA, and East Tennessee State Nursery in Delano, TN. The Joint Meeting of the Intertribal Nursery Council, Western Forest and Conservation Nursery Association, and Intermountain Container Seedling Growers’ Association was held at the Riverhouse in Bend, OR on August 11 to 13, 2012. Subject matter for the sessions was themed around seed technology for forest and conservation nurseries. This included sowing preparation, sowing strategies, advances in germination technology, seed orchards, and seed zones related to climate change and assisted migration. Additional meeting content included hands-on demonstrations with seed equipment. An afternoon field trip included tours of the USDA Forest Service Bend Seed Extractory and Wintercreek Native Plant Nursery, both in Bend, OR. The Intertribal Nursery Council portion of the meeting was also held at the Riverhouse, in Bend, OR on September 11, 2012. The meeting was hosted by the Confederated Tribes of the Warm Springs Indian Reservation and USDA Forest Service. Subject matter for the technical sessions included reforestation and restoration, low-tech tools for seed collecting and processing, seed storage and inventory, seed dormancy, Mescalero Apache greenhouse production, native plant materials development, and greenhouse structure and function.
