dc.description.abstract Current methods of collection and processing of tree seed is difficult and expensive. Moreover, the germination of tree seeds and establishment of seedlings requires sufficient soil moisture over adequate periods of time. The objective of this research was to develop a tree seeder to: regulate spacing between tree seeds; harvest and conserve rain water; conserve tree seeds and optimize its seeding cost; test the developed seeder at different ecological sites; and conduct a socioeconomic evaluation for the developed seeder. Findings show the developed seeder is acceptable and technically viable while it reduces the costs of thinning. en
