Use of Graded Nursery Stock for Red Pine Plantations
Abstract:In two studies of red pine plantations on the Allegheny Plateau of Pennsylvania, large seedlings were found to have an advantage in growth rate over smaller planting stock; and they still held this advantage after 12 years. Two different planting methods tried resulted in only slight differences in survival, growth, and frost-heaving.
