Experiments in Propagating Shipmast Locust
Abstract:Shipmast locust produces few or no seeds. Consequently the tree must be propagated by vegetative methods. A comprehensive study of this subject showed that shipmast and other locusts may feasibly be propagated by root cnttings. Such a method will doubtless cost somewhat more than seed propagation, and is therefore not recommended except in the case of certain desirable individual trees or strains. It appears to be the most practical method of large-scale propagation for the Long Island shipmast locust.
