Abstract/Summary Forest nursery and seedling production in Leyte has been an unsustainable development and livelihood undertaking, the focus of which has been solely to serve the usual funded reforestation projects that merely recognize the quantity rather than quality of planting materials produced. As a consequence, forest nursery and seedling production has never been established as a sustainable business venture particularly at the smallholder and local community level. Forest nursery accreditation and planting stock certification is believed to be a sound strategy that could promote high quality forest tree seedling production which would eventually establish this activity as a lucrative livelihood venture especially for smallholders and local communities. The nursery accreditation and planting material certification experiences in Leyte provide a useful basis and guide for the development and formalization of a system suitable for forest nursery accreditation and planting stock certification.
