Atlantic White Cedar Restoration in South Carolina: Effect of Fall Planting Date on Growth After 2 Years in the Field

six thousand Atlantic white cedar (A WC) transplants were established in October 2002 in a recentlydrained 4-ha man-made impoundment in Aiken County, South Carolina Survival was close to 100%. In a small replicated experiment (120 trees), growth the following year was significantly better for transplants established in September and October compared to November and December. This advantage was attributed to a shorter time of root confinement in containers during the fall. After 2 years in the field, transplants were about 1.3 m tall, and those planted in September were significantly taller than those planted in October or later. Planting throughout the fall appears feasible if soil moisture is adequate.
