Deep Planting of Slash Pine in the Carolina Sandhills
Abstract:Planting slash pine (Pinus elliottii Engelm. var. elliottii) seedlings to the depth of the terminal bud in old-field sandy soils increased survival and early height growth of both grade 2 and 3 stock over that of seedlings planted at normal root-collar depth. Deep planting had no detrimental effect on either tree height or diameter at age 10, but grade 3 stock grew less than grade 2, and growth of both grades decreased as depth to a fine-texture soil horizon increased.
