DescriptionShortleaf pine (Pinus echinata Mill.) seeds collected from several half-sib families were grown as both bare-root and container stock and outplanted on two sites in the Ouachita Mountains of Arkansas. When outplanted, the bare-root seedlings had greater mean height and root-collar diameter than the container seedlings. However, the container seedlings had greater mean root volume and more favorable shoot-to-root ratios than the bare-root stock. Survival of both stock types was excellent, exceeding 90 percent after 10 years. The container stock performed consistently better than the bare-root at each interval measured, but there were no statistically significant interactions between stock type and half-sib family at 3, 5, or 10 years.
