Effect of seedling age and taproot length on performance of oak

Effect of seedling age and taproot length on performance of oak

Northern Journal of Applied Forestry 10(4): 175-178

White oak and northern red oak seedlings were planted in an old field site in Indiana and evaluated for 9 yr to determine if seedling age and initial taproot length affected growth performance. Both 1+0 and 2+0 seedlings had been produced in specially designed containerized seedbeds that provided for root pruning to lengths of 23 and 30 cm through control of the level of water saturation in the rooting medium. Survival of both species was high, 95-100%.
