Quercus castaneifolia is one the most valuable species of northern forest in Iran. Therefore, study and determination of feasible time of planting is important for this species. This research was conducted in low and middle altitudes of Shafaroud watershed with 3 replications in six treatments including of planting of one year old seedlings in December, January, February, March, April and storing in March and planting in April. The study was carried out for 10 years continuously. In each plot 100 seedlings were planted in a spacing of 1m×1m. Totally, 1800 seedlings were planted in each zone and a sum of 3600 seedlings was used in this study. At the end of growing period, the survival percentage and height of 36 seedlings in the middle of each plot were recorded and ten years results showed that there was no significant difference among treatments (P < 5%).
