Survival of Planted Loblolly Pine Seedlings: Moisture, Temperature, and Soil as Influences
Abstract:In a 2-year study in north Mississippi, first-year survival of loblolly pine seedlings was related to time and duration of drought. Especially on sandy soils, heavy mortality occurred when drought lasted three weeks in May. Seedlings frozen in the packing bale were poor planting risks. Once planted, trees withstood extreme and sudden temperature changes.
