    Description

    Fourteen seed sources of Pinus palustrisfrom Georgia, 5 from Florida, and 1 from Alabama were grown at five locations in Georgia and at two in Florida. Results through the 15th year show: (1) survival and early height growth were best for the northern sources; (2) individual stand or seed source contributed strongly to the components of variation; (3) the seed source x plantation interaction was significant for growth traits; and (4) the species has a generally broad zone of adaptability in Georgia.
