Hastening the Germination of Western Pine Seeds
Abstract:The hastening of germination to reduce nursery losses and costs is of importance to forest nurserymen. The authors throw additional light upon the subject and report their experience with a chilling treatment, which they find to be an important factor in hastening germination, and that the optimum length of the chilling period varies with the species. Although the species studied are not generally looked upon as of commercial importance, they do have significant economic importance on the southern California watersheds.
