Pot experiment was conducted at Balsamand Research Farm in Department of Forestry, CCSHAU, Hisar. In this experiment mature seeds of Ailanthus excelsa, Acacia nilotica, Acacia tortilis, Dalbergia sissoo, Prosopis cineraria, Prosopis juliflora and Azadirachta indica were collected from middle age pluse trees from Balsamand Research Area and nearby places. The seeds of trees species were separated as large, medium and small on visual basis and measure its test weight, seed length, seed breadth and seed thickness with the help of vernier caliper and analysis its Test weight, germination percentage, initiation of germination,  shoot length, root length, collar diameter, fresh and dry root and shoot weight of seedlings and found that large seeds of each tree species performed significantly better than medium and small seeds in terms of growth parameters of seedlings of tree species.
