Pitch X Loblolly Hybrids after 10 Years in New Jersey
Abstract:Eleven years after planting, 88% of the pitch x loblolly hybrid families in a 1973 southern New Jersey test plantation are taller than the top pitch pine control, and 94% are taller than the top loblolly pine control. Ten years after planting, 88% of the pitch x loblolly hybrid families in a nearby test plantation established in 1974 are taller than the top pitch pine control, and 100% are taller than the top loblolly pine control. Survival of the hybrids averages 93% and 99%, respectively. The authors conclude that the best "pitchlob" hybrids can be used, depending on site, for replanting logged tracts and reclaiming sand and gravel pits. They may also prove useful for reforestation work in Korea. North. J. Appl. For. 4:207-209, December 1987.
