DescriptionIn southwestern Oregon, the first pilot-scale direct seeding of sugar pine produced a well-stocked stand of seedlings on a 45-acre tract. Control of seed-eating rodents was accomplished by spot-baiting with 1080-treated wheat before seeding, by spot-baiting with thallium sulfate-treated wheat in late December, and by broadcast-baiting with 1080-treated wheat in early May. In November, seed was placed in the ground less than an inch deep in spots spaced 4 x 8 feet apart. Seeding and poisoning combined required approximately one man-day per seeded acre.
