Containerized pine seedlings thrive in wood-fiber blocks

Six-week-old loblolly pine seedlings grown in soilless wood fiber blocks and outplanted in early July survived better and grew faster than seedlings grown in soil filled kraft-paper tubes. Survival of longleaf seedlings was lower in blocks than in tubes, but growth in the blocks was markedly better. Growth of seedlings in a late August planting was not satisfactory with either species in blocks or tubes.
