This study was carried out on of Kazdagi Fir (Abies equi-trojani aschers et sinten) to contribute for nursery practices of the species. Seedling height, root-collar diameter, number of branches were examined in 0+2, 0+3 and 0+4 year of Kazdagi Fir seedlings sampled 100 from each age group in Balikesir Forest Nursery at the end of growing period of 2013. Seedling quality and relation among the characteristics were investigated. Averages of seedling height, root-collar diameter, number of 0+2, 0+3 and 0+4 year old seedlings were 20.4 cm, 27.3 cm nd 37.8 cm; 8.2 mm, 8.9 mm and 10.9 mm, 5.1, 6.8 and 7.5, respectively.
