    Description

    White pine (Pinus strobus L.) is one of the most important timber trees in the northeastern United States and eastern Canada (Demeritt and Garrett 1996). White pine is not native to Missouri; it is commonly planted for wind breaks and erosion control and as an ornamental. Unusual mortality of bare-root seedlings of white pine purchased from the George O. White State Forest Nursery has been occurring after planting throughout the state. Th ere are numerous possible explanations for white pine seedling mortality which may act alone or in combination.
