KY Foresters Collecting Native Seeds
Foresters are scouring university campuses, tree farms, cemeteries and Kentucky woodlands in search of nuts, fruit and seeds from native trees.
Division of Forestry Director Leah MacSwords says staffers from her agency will plant them in the state's two nurseries to produce seedlings that can be replanted.
They're looking for yellow poplar, butternut, chestnut, walnut, persimmon, Kentucky coffeetree, pawpaw, two types of ash and seven types of oak.
MacSwords says using local seeds avoids the chance of introducing diseases from other areas.
