    Description

    A coordinated investigation was carried out with sweetgum seedlings from a nursery in South Carolina (SC) and one in Virginia (VA) to evaluate the effects of cultural practices and Botryosphaeria on the establishment and initial growth of transplanted sweetgum. Seedlings from VA were more sensitive to treatments than those from SC, and date of leaf emergence after planting correlated with subsequent growth (r = 0.79, p = 0.01). Inoculation with Botryosphaeria had little impact on seedlings, but increased care during lifting and reduced seedling exposure at lifting and at the planting site increased early growth and survival of seedlings.
