    Description

    Bottomland hardwood forests were damaged by Hurricane Katrina in 2005 when it made landfall along the Gulf Coast. Regenerating these areas, which can be difficult without planning and artificial regeneration, has often been problematic when using 1-0 bare-root seedlings because of inconsistencies with the seedling quality. Some growers have begun producing containerized and large-container potted seedlings to provide a more consistent seedling. This study evaluated the first-year height and ground line diameter (GLD) growth of three different planting stocks (1-0 bare-root, conventional containerized, and EKOgrown® [EKOsystems Partners, Ithaca, NY] seedlings) of water oak (Quercus nigra) and swamp chestnut oak (Q. michauxii).
