On a hardwood-dominated site in central Louisiana, 15-year growth of planted and seeded loblolly (Pinus taeda L.) and slash (P. elliottii Engelm. var. elliottii) pines was similar. Although measurements of trees 3.6 inches dbh and larger were slightly greater on planted than on seeded plots, the only significant superiority was dbh of slash pine. The slim gain for planting probably resulted from a one-year age advantage.
