DescriptionI would like to start by giving a complete prescription for planting any hardwood species by a cheap and simple method that will insure excellent survival and good growth. Unfortunately, this is impossible, for we at the Southern Hardwoods Laboratory are still several years away from such prescriptions with nearly all of our important hardwoods. With most species, however, we have had enough experience to gain some knowledge of what we can do and a lot of information about what we can't do. We can, for instance, give you a satisfactory method for stratifying sweetgum seed, and we can also tell you not to use sycamore cuttings for planting old-field clay sites.
