DescriptionLarger size and higher percentages of plantable 1-0 and 2-0 green ash (Fraxinus pennsylvanica Marsh.) and Nuttall oak (Quercus nuttallii Palmer) seedlings were produced in the wider spacing-lower density plots. Greater numbers of plantable seedlings were produced in the higher density plots. Spacing significantly affected diameters, heights, and percentages of plantable seedlings, but with few exceptions had no effect on nutrient concentrations of stems and roots.
