A Comparison of the Results Obtained With Forest-Pulled and Nursery-Grown Planting Stock in Northern Minnesota
Abstract:When it can be obtained at reasonable cost the feasibility of using planting stock obtained by lifting wild forest-grown seedlings is determined by its survival and subsequent growth. The author describes the results of a 15-year-old experiment with white and Norway pines, comparing wild with nursery stock. He reports a reasonable degree of success under certain conditions but considers nursery-grown stock superior to the wild.
