DescriptionThe performance of container and bareroot loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) seedlings from the same improved seedlot was compared on highly productive bottomland sites in South Carolina. At the time of planting, size and quality of the open-grown container stock were equal to or better than bareroot material. When outplanting conditions were ideal, field plantings in March, April, and May of 2 successive years indicated equal performance of the 2 stock types. When conditions were more stressfu1, container stock survived and grew better than bareroot seedlings. Needle-tip burn caused by postplanting app1ication.s of herbicides had no long-term effects on seedling growth.
