Fifteen-Year Results of a Limited Range Eastern Larch Source Study

Seedlings from the NC-51 Eastern larch seed source study were planted on three sites in northern West Virginia. In an earlier report, seventh year results were presented for one of the three plantation. This report includes an evaluation of all three plantings at 15 years of age. The low elevation planting (1100 ft) had very poor survival and no measurements were taken. Results from the two high elevation plantings (2300 ft) are presented and recommendations are made for sources that are suitable for planting in this area.
