What's Your Survival?

What is the survival of last season's planting? This pertinent question is often foremost in the minds of foresters and others engaged in large-scale tree planting. This paper describes sampling techniques that will provide reasonably satisfactory estimates of first-year pine survival at minimum cost and effort. It is based on 5 years experience in determining first-year survival of pine plantings within the Yazoo-Little Tallahatchie flood prevention project area. Fifty million loblolly seedlings are planted annually within the 19 north Mississippi counties in this flood prevention project.
