Planting Pine Tubelings in Minnesota
Abstract:Preliminary results after two growing seasons show overall mean survival of 77 percent for jack pine and 70 percent for red pine on four sites for plantings from June 1 through August 1. September planting was less satisfactory, 34.4 and 20.8 percent survival for jack pine and red pine, respectively. These results indicate a possible extension of the planting season at least through July. Selection of planting sites, site preparation, and extra care in handling and planting are especially critical when using tubelings.
