After 10 years there were significant differences in rust infection and height in a south Mississippi planting of Pinus elliottii, P. echinata, and P. taeda from 11 seed sources. The slash pine was tallest and most infected; the shortleaf was shortest and had no rust cankers; and the loblolly was intermediate in both traits. Loblolly pines from seed collected west of the Mississippi River were more resistant to rust than eastern loblolly, and loblolly progenies from east Texas varied among themselves.
