Relationship of shoot-root ratio to survival and growth of outplanted Douglas-fir and ponderosa pine seedlings



Relationship of shoot-root ratio to survival and growth of outplanted Douglas-fir and ponderosa pine seedlings



USDA Forest Service Research Note, Pacific Northwest Forest and Range Experiment Station (PNW- 274): 7



Seedlings (2+0) in 3 ht. classes (7-11, 14-18, and 21-25 cm) and with large or small root systems were planted in May 1975 on 2 dry sites burnt 5 years previously in north-central Washington. Measurements made in Nov. showed that survival was better when seedlings with a low shoot/root ratio were used.
