Abstract

The objective of this study was to determine annual production costs for field-grown rapid-growing evergreens in Ohio by size of firm. This objective was accomplished by synthesizing two model field nurseries using an economic engineering approach. Once the nurseries were simulated, growing space was divided into five equal parts with each segment being assigned a plant group. In the 50-acre nursery, rapid-growing evergreens were allocated 8 acres of growing space and in the 200-acre nursery 35 acres. One species of rapid-growing evergreens (Juniperus) was chosen for detailed analysis.
