DescriptionRepellent-treated seed of slash pine (Pinus elliottii Engelm. var. elliottii) were sown at eight monthly dates from November to June for 5 years in Dooly County, Georgia. Observations of seedlings indicated that germination, survival, and first-year establishment were superior on plots planted in November through April. Slow germination in November and likelihood of droughtiness in May, however, detract from November and April as suitable months for direct seeding. The optimum for seeding was mid-February through March. This season allows for germination and early seedling development when soil moisture is adequate and daily high temperatures are between 70 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit.
