Effect of fall planting date on survival and growth of three coniferous species of container seedlings in northern Idaho

Effect of fall planting date on survival and growth of three coniferous species of container seedlings in northern Idaho

Tree Planters' Notes 42(2): 52-55

One-yr-old seedlings of Pseudotsuga menziesii var. glauca, Pinus monticola and P. ponderosa were planted on a uniform site at 2 wk intervals from late August to early November 1988. Seedling survival and growth was assessed 6-weekly during the 1989 growing season. Planting date did not affect first-yr survival, which was 95-100%. Although the differences were not significant, the earliest planting date produced the largest seedlings at the end of August 1989.
