Field Survival and Growth of Tree Seedlings Raised in Biocide-Treated Nursery Soils
Jack pine (Pious banksiana Lamb.) and white spruce (Picea glauca [Moench] Voss) seedlings were raised in nursery soils treated with varying amounts of calomel, chlordane, Stoddard solvent, mineral fertilizers, and the F+H layers of humus frown a hardwood-hemlock stand. The stock produced under these conditions was field planted in central and northern Wisconsin and observations on survival and height growth were recorded. After four (jack pine) or five (white spruce) years of observations the results indicated no clear-cut relationships between seedbed treatments and field performance and it is concluded that other environmental factors were more decisive in determining the early growth of the trees being studied.
