The presence or absence of female-strobilus buds was studied on both primary and secondary branches of 13 longleaf pines. On secondary branches, the presence of strobili was associated with vigorous shoot growth and the presence of conelets. On primary branches, presence or absence of conelets had no effect on subsequent production of strobili, and shoot growth was not as closely related to strobilus production as in secondary branches. Forest Sci. 22:159-161.
