Seedling root growth potential (RGP) and first- and second-year field survival, and height growth were investigated in 31 different samples of loblolly pine planting stock from the Virginia nurseries. The results showed that seedling RGP may be a good indicator of first-year growth and field survival of planted loblolly pine. Additional research is warranted on applications of RGP analyses to assess the quality of loblolly pine planting stock and the nursery and post-harvest practices impacting seedling quality. Forest Sci. 31:1005-1011.
