Methods and results are given for a vacuum drying technique for storage of pollens of eastern white pine, Korean pine, Balkan pine, Swiss stone pine, and Himalayan pine. In in vitro tests, pollen of all species remained viable for 5 or more years. Eastern white pine pollen remained viable for 8 years and Swiss stone pine for 12 years or more. Seedlings were obtained from pollinations made with pollen of Swiss stone pine, eastern white pine, and Himalayan pine stored 5 years. Forest Sci. 24:100-102.
