Contracting, Communication, and Pricing Trends for Forest Seedlings

Many nurseries and reforestation programs have a difficult time with shortages of farm labor and increasing labor costs. In most cases, these increasing costs will be passed on to the customer by increasing seedling prices. This labor shortage could also result in interruptions and delays in the timely lifting and delivery of seedlings. Given the situation, it is imperative that the nursery and customer maintain open and fair communication and that they document expectations in the form of a legal contract. This paper was presented at the Joint annual meeting of the Western Forestry and Conservation Nursery Association and the Pacific Northwest Reforestation Council (Corvallis, OR, October 11–12, 2017).
