DescriptionProduction and dispersal of longleaf pine (Pinus palustris Mill.) seeds were sampled in 1955, 1957, and 1958 on the Escambia Experimental Forest in southwest Alabama.
Two transects of seed traps were established at right angles to each of four forest walls enclosing a rectangular 80-acre clearing. Walls were oriented in the cardinal directions, and consisted of second-growth longleaf pines 40 to 50 years old. Dominant trees averaged 65 feet in height.
