Juvenility as a factor in propagating Quercus virginiana Mill

Juvenility as a factor in propagating Quercus virginiana Mill

Q. virginiana, usually grown commercially from acorns, was successfully propagated with juvenile stem tip cuttings and stem suckers under intermittent mist. Differences in rooting response occurred between juvenile and adult wood; apparent genetic differences in ability to root were seen among trees selected for cuttings.
