Water Storage of Forest Planting Stock
Successful forest planting requires the most careful handling of planting stock from the time the trees are lifted in the nursery beds until they are planted in the field. Once planted, the fate of these young trees is usually out of our control, but until then the human factor is of the utmost importance. It is generally accepted that trees held for any length of time with their roots submerged in water will die from lack of root aeration. The .purpose of the experiment covered in this article is to ascertain the effect of water storage during periods of considerable length upon the survival of trees after planting in the field. Like many such experiments, it is designed to determine if a previously drawn conclusion is correct.
