Dewinging Damage to Slash Pine Seed

The seed coat of slash pine (Pinus elliottii Engelm.) is much softer than the coats of some of the other southern pines. It is characterized by a very thin outer coating, varying in color from tan to black, which is easily removed by rubbing. Scarification or removal of this coating from the outer seed coat is common during the dewinging process. Scarified areas on the seed are usually light brown.
