DescriptionRepeated radiation frosts caused no apparent harm to the majority of lodgepole pine (
Pinus contorta Dougl.) seedlings planted on a pumice flat in south-central Oregon. For most but not all of the ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa Dougl.) seedlings planted with the lodgepole pine, however, damage from radiation frost resulted in reduced height growth.
