Early Planting Experiments in the Spruce-Fir Type of the Southern Appalachians
Many coniferous species have been planted experimentally from time to time throughout the country, in the hope of finding species as good or better than the native ones. The acute need of artificial reforestation in the southern Appalachian spruce-fir type has made this kind of research of special interest in tbe region. The present article reports the results obtained with 20 species planted from 1923 to 1931 in 78 plots near Mount Mitchell in North Carolina.
