One of the hexadecanols (a saturated, fatty alcohol known as cetyl alcohol) markedly reduced the loss by drought of field-planted 3-0 red pine. The site was a steep, droughty, windswept hillside of prairie soil near LaCrosse, Wis.ยน The antidesiccant was applied quite economically as a foliar dip immediately before planting. It showed no response on two less difficult, formerly forested sites with better moisture relations.
