Abstract
In Canada, most tree seedlings are shipped from nurseries in waxed corrugated cardboard boxes. These boxes are then usually disposed of by burning or by putting into landfills. The Forest Engineering Research Institute of Canada (FERIC) investigated collapsible reusable plastic shipping containers as an alternative to waxed corrugated cardboard boxes for shipping tree seedlings. This report discusses types of tree seedling containers currently being used and tested in Canada, the feasibility of using collapsible reusable plastic shipping containers, and disposal options for waxed corrugated cardboard boxes.

Abstract
Au Canada, les pépinières expédient la plupart des semis dans des boîtes de carton ondulé ciré. Ces boîtes sont ensuite brûlées ou déposées dans des sites d’enfouissement. L’Institut canadien de recherches en génie forestier (FERIC) a étudié la possibilité d’utiliser des contenants pliants réutilisables en plastique au lieu de boîtes de carton ondulé ciré pour l’expédition des semis. Le rapport traite des types de contenants pour semis couramment en usage ou mis à l’essai au Canada, de la faisabilité d’expédier les semis dans des contenants pliants réutilisables en plastique, ainsi que des moyens de disposer des boîtes de carton ondulé ciré.

Abstract
Reflective tarpaulins are used extensively in Western Canada to protect tree seedlings against solar radiation during transportation and on-site storage prior to planting. This report outlines heat transfer characteristics of new and used reflective tarpaulins, and a FIST (Fiberglass Insulated Seedling Transporter) canopy. Containerized white spruce (Picea glauca (Moench) Voss) seedlings were exposed to heat while stored in boxes under tarpaulins. In a separate laboratory experiment, seedlings were pre-conditioned and exposed to heat. All seedlings were outplanted in nursery plots, and survival and growth were monitored.

Abstract
In the Spring of 1989, FERIC received funding support through a Forestry Canada FRDA contract to build an insulated seedling-transportation canopy for use on a pickup truck. The objectives of the study was to compare the thermal and operational effectiveness of the canopy to conventional methods of seedling transportation and field storage in the Summer of 1998, FERIC tested the insulated canopy by using it to transport cold-stored seedlings on one planting contract and hot-lift seedlings on a second contract.

Abstract
Au Québec, on procède à la plantation de semis de fortes dimensions comme solution pour éliminer l'usage de phytocides. Jusqu'à maintenant, plusieurs millions de ces gros semis ont été plantés et les résultats préliminaires sur leur taux de survie et leur croissance sont prometteurs. FERIC a effectué des études chronométriques dans des opérations de reboisement durant les saisons 1993 et 1994. Les dimensions des semis, le type d'emballage et les méthodes de préparation de terrain étaient les principaux facteurs qui affectaient la productivité des planteurs.

Abstract
Large seedlings are being planted in Quebec as an alternative to the application of herbicides. To date, several million of these large seedlings have been planted and preliminary results on their survival and growth are promising. FERIC conducted time studies on planting operations during the 1993 and 1994 seasons. Seedlings size, type of packaging and site preparation methods were the main factors that affected planter productivity.
