Importance of Stock Quality in Survival and Growth of Planted Trees
Abstract:Field-run seedlings, sorted into four grades and planted in Wisconsin 13 years ago, show differences according to grade. High mortality of the paorer stock in an early drought year proves the benefits of better stock. The relatively few culls that did survive are now almost equaling the growth rate of the better-stock trees.
