Stem Quality of White Pine Established by Seeding in Furrows and by Planting
Abstract:The quality of eastern white pine established by direct seeding is compared to that of a conventional 6 x 6 ft plantation. Tree density of the seeded pine was nearly three times that of the plantation. The seeded trees were the same height, had a smaller dbh, less stem injury due to the white pine weevil, and smaller branches. The result is a direct-seeded tree of higher quality at a lower establishment cost than a plantation tree. North. J. Appl. For. 5:128-129, June 1988.
