Cone Production by Rooted Cuttings, Grafts, and Seedlings of Western Larch
Abstract:Cone production in 1991 was compared among rooted cuttings from juvenile trees, grafts from mature scions, and seedlings planted in a common garden in Plains, MT, in 1981 and 1983. The differences among tree types were statistically significant for the mean number of cones per tree, but were not significant for the percent of trees producing cones. A projection of cone production per 1,000 trees showed that the grafts would produce nearly twice the number of cones as the seedlings and more than five times the number of cones as the rooted cuttings under the same conditions.
