Which Sand Pine to Plant in Florida? Fifth-Year Test Results
Abstract:Ocala (Pinus clausa var. clausa Ward), Choctawhatchee (P. clausa var. immuginata Ward), and Withlacoochee sand pines were established in 1970 at seven sites from Walton Country in northwest Florida to Volusia County in east-central Florida. After five years, the Choctawhatchee source had uniformly good survival but the lowest height. The Withlacoochee source was characterized by good height and intermediate survival. Ocala sand pine had the poorest survival and the greatest height. The Choctawhatchee source seems most suited for large scale reforestation, while the Withlacoochee source has potential for more widespread use than it is currently receiving.
