    Description

    A continuous-furrow, bareroot-stock, mechanical planter was used to plant red pine tree seedlings on five sites in northern Michigan. Several indicators of planting efficiency were analyzed including utilization of the available land area, productivity as related to site conditions and planting pattern, cost, and effectiveness of the V-blade.
