Loblolly and slash pine seedlings from the fusiform rust resistant orchards developed cooperatively by the USDA Forest Service and the Georgia Forestry Commission had significantly less rust 7 to 8 years after planting on four of five sites in the Georgia and South Carolina than seedlings of the same species from orchard sources developed primarily for silvicultural improvement. Loblolly and slash pine family plantings varied in rust susceptibility on eight sites after 5 to 7 years.
