The Institute manages two nurseries with capacity to accommodate 100000′s of potted seedlings at a time. The main function is to provide venue for training in raising planting stocks. The seedlings so raised are used to plant in the training forest and support tree planting in the surrounding local communities and by individuals. Each student is required to raise a certain number of seedlings and has to go through all the steps. On request, the nurseries are used to raise ornamental plants.
