Classes of Shortleaf Pine Nursery Stock for Planting in the Missouri Ozarks
Abstract:Shortleaf pine is the only species that the Forest Service plans to plant on a large scale for forest production in the Missouri Ozarks. A two-year study with several classes of nursery stock in open cull oak and dense mixed oak stands on the Clark National Forest indicates that, when survival, height growth, and cost of production are taken into consideration, 1-0 seedlings are the most satisfactory stock for general use, and that spring planting gives better results than fall planting. Where fall planting is necessary, and where unusually severe competition from ground cover must be met, 1-1 transplants are desirable.
