    Description

    Shortleaf pine (Pinus echinata Mill.) seeds collected from several half-sib families were grown as both container and bareroot stock and outplanted in two tests at the George O White Nursery in Licking, Missouri. After eight growing seasons, 2-year-old container seedlings had significantly better survival than 2-year-old bareroot seedlings, while survival of the 1-year stocktypes was not significantly different. Two-year-old container seedlings had 52 percent higher survival than 2-year-old bareroot stock. Two-year-old bareroot seedlings had greater stem diameter and volume growth than the 2-year-old container seedlings, but the two stocktypes were not significantly different in height. One-year-old stocktypes did not perform significantly different in all growth traits.
