Abstract:First-year female strobili and newly initiated female strobilus buds of Pinus taeda L. become dormant in the fall. Neither will resume growth under long day and favorable temperatures without an intervening treatment. In contrast, both vegetative buds and male buds will resume development under such conditions without treatment. FOREST SCI. 23:373-375.
