Studies in Raising Southern Pine Nursery Seedlings
Abstract:Considerable difficulty has been experienced at the Stuart Forest Nursery in obtaining a satisfactory relationship between the number of southern pine seeds planted and the number of plantable seedlings produced. This study shows the nursery treatment was not responsible for the low tree percentage; the problem is one primarily concerned with the methods of handling the seed prior to sowing.
