    Description

    Use of rooted cuttings for planting of pine trees has become increasingly popular. Vegetative propagation can deliver planting stock of higher genetic quality, increasing productivity and shortening rotations. Clonal forestry can also provide stands of higher uniformity, which can reduce logging and processing cost and yield a much more uniform product. One of the largest disadvantages of rooted cuttings is keeping the cost low compared to bareroot nursery stock. Several large companies in the southeastern United States are in the initial stages of developing operational rooted cutting programs.
