With the advancement of the agricultural frontier and the predatory marketing of forest resources, the original vegetation has been replaced at an alarming rate, leaving only small fragments that are inefficient to meet the structural and ecological functions inherent in these environments. In these cases, to accelerate the restoration of natural processes, the use of seedlings of native species for revegetation of wetlands becomes one of the most viable options. The production of quality seedlings in sufficient quantities and at lower cost, depends, among other factors, water, therefore, this study aims to evaluate the development and quality of seedlings of three native tree species, belonging to different successional groups, when subjected to four slides of gross water applied at two frequencies of irrigation, water management determine the most appropriate for each species and to relate the water management provided in the nursery with the survival time of seedlings after planting. The design is a 3x2 factorial design (depth and frequency), totaling 06 treatments by specie. The survival rate of seedlings after planting will be a completely random distribution. For statistical analysis, will use the technique of analysis of variance (ANOVA) followed by Tukey test for mean comparison between treatments and interactions of the unfolding events. (AU)
