Fall Planting and Storage Using Non-Dormant Seedlings

Lifting, storing, and planting loblolly pine seedlings in October and November, before they become fully dormant,was tested over a three year period. Survival for immediate planting (the same day or the day after lifting) was satisfactory in two of the three years for October liftings, and in all three years for November liftings. Long term cold storage in 1971 (2 to 3 months)caused almost complete mortality of seedlings lifted in October and November. Two weeks of cold storage in 1972 and 1973 resulted in very poor survival for the October liftings, and satisfactory survival in 1972 but not in 1973 for the November liftings.
