Longleaf X Slash Hybrids at Age 7: Survival, Growth, and Disease Susceptibility
Abstract:Hybrids planted in central Louisiana are demonstrating desirable characteristics of both parent species. They closely resemble longleaf pine in form and branching habits but start height growth immediately and grow almost as fast as slash pine. They appear less susceptible than their parents to the brown spot needle blight of longleaf and the fusiform rust of slash pine.
