Principles governing the acceptability of conventional and innovative artificial forestation techniques are discussed. Containerized seedling systems, like direct seeding and bare-root planting, are attempts to stock lands according to goal prescriptions at minimum overall cost. Useful principles of container methods are those that have a demonstrated, or potential capability of balancing adequate biological field performance against acceptable production costs. Container concepts are cited to illustrate guiding bio-economic principles.
