Moisture Stress and Root Volume Influence Transplant Shock: Preliminary Results

Despite evidence of its economic impact, very little is known about transplant shock. This study was designed to evaluate transplant shock in relation to root volume and soil water content for two year-old Douglas-fir seedlings. Preliminary results found that new growth decreased and days to budbreak increased with higher moisture stress. This effect was most pronounced for high root volume seedlings in the driest soil. Forthcoming results are expected to further implicate moisture stress as an influencing factor in transplant shock.
