Longleaf pine (Pinus palustris Mill.) is the most difficult of the southern pines to regenerate by artificial means. One of the basic concerns in regenerating longleaf pine has been in obtaining, processing, and storing seeds of good quality. High seed quality is essential for successful regeneration of the species by either direct seeding or planting. Recommendations for producing and maintaining seed quality at a level equivalent to seeds of the other southern pines are developed in this article. Southern J. Appl. For. 17(4): 180-187.
