Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Oregon tree seedling nurseries to conduct improvements to facilities. Funding is intended to increase seedling production capacity and supply. The purpose of the program is to enhance the ability of nurseries in the future to address changing reforestation needs on both private and public lands, as a result of fires across the state.

In 2021, Oregon Legislature passed House Bill 5006 Section 183 and approved funding to Oregon Department of Forestry for distribution as grants to expand tree seedling nursery capacity and supply. These grants will go to tree seedling nurseries for improvements to their facilities with the intension of increasing seedling production capacity across the state to increase ability to respond to future post-fire reforestation needs. The added capacity is not a guarantee that awarded nurseries will grow seedlings specifically for reforestation purposes, but an investment within the overall infrastructure to add capacity across the state for those years when seedlings demand exceeds capacity.

Program eligibility:

  • Experience growing high quality commercial conifer species for reforestation purposes, including Douglas Fir, Grand Fir, Western Red Cedar, Ponderosa pine and others
  • Able to increase seedling capacity using funds in allotted timeframe
  • Utilize funds for projects in the state of Oregon to increase seedling capacity for use in Oregon
  • Demonstrated interest in assisting with reforestation needs in response to future natural and human-caused disasters in Oregon

Funding Priorities

  • Project aims to increase long term seedling capacity to serve future reforestation needs of Oregon’s public and private lands
  • A diversity of species, and geographical range of seedlings should be represented across nurseries awarded grants

Fundable Activities

  • Building or expanding cooler or freezer space
  • Building or expanding greenhouse space
  • Building or expanding seedbed space
  • Irrigation capacity
  • Land purchase/lease (ODF will not be a third party in any lease agreements.)
  • Machinery
  • Other projects/purchases that directly contribute to increased seedling capacity
  • Seed Storage infrastructure
  • Seed collection
  • Seed purchasing (Seed purchasing may be up to 10% of total budget.)
