Abstract/Summary Low quality of planting stock is a widely recognized problem for establishing timber plantations and land rehabilitation in the Philippines, and nursery accreditation for adoption of best management seedling production has been identified as a critical step towards overcoming this problem. An LGU-based nursery accreditation and seedling certification system has been trialled in the Palompon Local Government Unit (LGU) in Leyte, with the support of the ACIAR seedling enhancement project and the Development Bank of the Philippines watershed rehabilitation project. This initiative has required community organizing, setting up an accreditation standard and protocol, on-site training, and establishing a nursery accreditation team. Further challenges are expected in implementation of the accreditation scheme, for example relating to financial management and resource mobilization in local nurseries, sourcing of high quality seeds and wildlings, and establishing market linkages for high quality planting stock.
