Spring Sowing of Longleaf Pine Reduces Risk of Seedling Clipping
Abstract:Longleaf pine can be established by direct-seeding burned, disked, or furrowed sites in February to circumvent midwinter seedling losses. Although the ability of spring-sown seedlings to survive severely dry summers has not been demonstrated, sowing season had no effect on first-year survival during a three-year period of moderate summer conditions.
