WHICH LOBLOLLY PINE SEEDLING HAS A HIGHER SURVIVAL POTENTIAL-A DEEP PLANTED J-ROOT OR A SHALLOW PLANTED I-ROOT?’ David B.

EFFECT OF FREEZING ON SURVIVAL OF LOBLOLLY PINE SEEDLINGS. EFFECT OF FREEZING ON SURVIVAL OF LOBLOLLY PINE SEEDLINGS By: J. w. Garner and T. A. Dierauf. Abstract. Loblolly pine seedling packages were put out to freeze during two different cold spells that lasted two and three days, and during which,- temperatures dropped to 12° and Fahrenheit, respectively.

Seventy years ago one term described the only loblolly pine seedlings available, because all seedlings were collected from the wild or were grown from seed collected from wild trees. In the s, tree improve­ ment programs were begun to try to boost the produc­ tivity of loblolly Size: KB. Containerized seedlings have a wider window for planting beginning in late October and going through April. Containerized seedlings are grown in tubes that help the seedling develop a dense root system that is fairly easy to plant. Containerized loblolly, slash and shortleaf pines can be planted with the entire root plug placed in the planting hole. The survival of bare-root and container-grown loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) seedlings exceeded 90% when outplanted in March at two sites in Lee County, Alabama. age). Loblolly trees in the Atlantic Coastal plain may contain percent juvenile wood when harvested at age 10 (with a specific gravity of ). In contrast, at the tree may have a specific gravity of and contain 35 percent juvenile wood. Pines harvested at age 20 will have lower specific gravity wood than pines harvested at but.

Advantages/disadvantages of using containerized seedlings. Research todate shows that deep planting does not affect resprouting and improves initial survival. 1 Field results with container-grown shortleaf pines have been very consistent with survival rates often in the high 80 percent to low 90 percent range.
