Rust-free survivors from artificial inoculations of open-pollinated slash pine families were established in paired field plots with noninoculated controls from the same families. After 5 years, rust-free survivors were galled less frequently than noninoculated controls, had equivalent survival, grew as well, and possessed similar variation in height. Such trees should therefore be useful in future breeding and as seed orchard rootstock. Forest Sci. 21:275-277.
