In 1974, non-commercial forest nurseries shipped one billion plants, an increase of 6 percent over 1964. Loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) and slash pine (Pinus elliottii var. elliottii) production exceeded that of all other species combined. Black locust (Robinia pseudoacacia L.) was the leading hardwood. Cultural changes at nurseries during the decade 1965-74 include: increased mechanization in harvesting seedlings, greater dependence on chemical weed control, and more use of soil sterilants and hydromulches. Production of genetically improved planting stock, especially of loblolly and slash pines, increased significantly. A few nurseries were propagating container-grown seedlings in 1974.
