    Description

    This paper presents a-year survival and growth data for six northern red oak plantings, each containing three morphological seedling grades, over a range of site indexes from 76 to 98 feet at age 50.

    Seedling survival averaged 94 percent, with no important differences due to seedling grade or site index. Height growth has averaged only 3 inches a year. There has been no significant growth difference between grades, but seedlings on site 76 land grew less than those on the five sites with higher site index.
