    Description

    Red pine was planted in 1962 using five ground preparation methods and two classes of planting stock. After 9 years, 3-0 trees planted by a Lowther machine with scalpers and by hand in single plowed furrows had 37 percent more survival than trees hand planted in scalps. Planting method did not afect survival 2-1 transplants. Height growth for both classes of stock ws 18 percent greater for the machine and single-furrow planted trees at 9 years than for trees hand planted in scalps. Survival and growth of trees hand planted in bench terraces and in double furrows were in between the values for the other methods.
