Most of our seedlings are produced at the Virginia Department of Forestry’s nursery in Augusta county. Pine and hardwood seeds are sown and seedlings are visually inspected, harvested, hand-graded, labeled and packaged for delivery. Many hardwood species are grown from acorns and seeds collected by volunteers around the state and donated to the nurseries. Virginia-grown seeds generally produce trees that will grow well in the state. Fairfax ReLeaf uses this source whenever possible.
