The seeds should be collected from the selected tree following different guidelines. The seeds should be collected from healthy vigorous trees of reasonably good form that are making more than the average growth.The seeds produced by immature and mature trees are sometimes infertile so middle aged trees has to be chosen for collection.Poorly deformed, diseased, abnormal, insect infested trees has to be avoided. The seedlings that are produced from the isolated trees of naturally cross- pollinating species,( are likely to be self pollinated ) are weak or malformed and seeds few with low viability. Dominant and Co-dominant trees are mostly chosen and vigorous wolf-trees are also avoided.
