DescriptionPlanting container seedlings, which have relatively fully formed root systems encased in a soil-filled plug, may improve loblolly pine plantation productivity by increasing early survival and growth relative to that of conventionally planted bareroot seedlings. Planting seedlings in fall may also confer productivity increases to loblolly pine plantations by giving seedlings more time to form root systems and accumulate nutrients before onset of droughty conditions in summer months. Potential productivity increases associated with container seedlings and fall planting may be most pronounced on well-drained sites that exacerbate the effects of drought. The objective of this study was to determine loblolly pine survival and growth in response to seedling type and planting date.
