Acknowledgements

The original concept and framework for this guidebook was developed in 1992 by R. Scagel, M. Madill, and C. Kooistra with the publication of the Seedling Stock Type Selection and Ordering Guidelines Nelson Forest Region. In 1993, these authors teamed up with Rob Bowden to produce the Provincial Seedling Stock Type Selection and Ordering Guidelines.

This update of the 1993 guidebook was coordinated by Andrea Eastham, Industrial Forestry Service Ltd., Prince George, B.C. The quality of the 1993 publication made the update a comparatively easy process. Major contributors to this update included Clare Kooistra, Mike Madill, Al McDonald, John McClarnon, Dave Trotter, and Eric van Steenis. Phil Comeau, Paul Courtin, Chris Hawkins, and Mike Carlson contributed the information on hardwood species. Rob Bowden, Nola Daintith, Ev van Eerden, Patti Kagawa, Anna Monetta, Rob Scagel, Larry Sigurdson, and many others provided useful input on the draft and the original publication. A special thanks to the forest seedling nurseries of British Columbia that, on such short notice, graciously provided the best examples of the crop of1998. Special thanks also to the staff at TM Communications Inc. for editorial, design, and layout services.
