i have them in zip lock bags now
What trees and why are you storing them?
sweet gum, cypress and oak. trying to store them until spring
If they are hardy trees in your area then you should be able to plant them now and let nature give them the cold treatment for your. Otherwise I might add some moist sand to the bags in the fridge. You don't want them to dry out before spring.
Some good info:
You are asking how to store seed not how to germinate seeds. If that is all you are asking you can simply put them in your refrigerator. Long term storage is accomplished by dropping the moisture content to about ten percent and setting the holding temperature to about 0 and -10 C, some seed retailers set the temperatures much lower but I don't know how this is accomplished or what the temperture is but it is very low. For the rest of us putting them in your frig. is good enough for up-to a year.
Thank you very much, thats just what i wanted to know :-)

Duaa, I forgot, put them in a plastic bag,
if you want to plant them when you take them out and they naturally have a dormant period put them in a damp mix of 1:1 peat and sand.
To just be a seed or to be a tree that is the the link>
I save my prescription bottles to store them in. Make very easy containers for taking to the garden. The ideal size if your doctor will save them is the sample containers they throw away by the hundreds.
