    Description

    Longleaf pine, although widely distributed in the presettlement forests of the southern Coastal Plain, now occupies less than 10 percent of its original range. It is a highly desirable species because it resists fire, insects, and disease and produces excellent quality solid-wood products. Regeneration of the species either by natural methods or by planting of bare-root nursery stock has been difficult, and renewed interest in it has resulted in evaluation of new approaches to seedling establishment. Using container stock has greatly improvcd the success of longleaf pine establishment. Practical guidelines arc presented that will help nursery personnel consistently produce good container stock that will survive well and initiate early height growth.
