Survival of Hail-Damaged Slash Pine Seedlings Higher thans Expected

Hailstorms are few and scattered in the South but when one hits a tree nursery, serious losses can result. One such storm occurred at Georgia's Morgan Memorial Nursery (near Macon) on May 28, 1965. The storm lasted 10 minutes, dropping ill-inch hailstones and more than two inches of rain. High winds whipped the 30- day-old slash pine seedlings and scattered the oat straw mulch.
