Improving the Quality of Longleaf Pine Seeds from Orchards

Abstract.--Longleaf pine (Pinus palustris Mill.) seeds are sensitive to damage during collecting, processing, storing, and treating activities. High quality seeds are essential for successful regeneration of the species by either direct seeding or planting. Results from recent tests are combined with earlier data to develop recommendations for producing and maintaining longleaf pine seeds of high quality. Keywords: Pinus palustris, southern pines, nursery production, germination, cone and seed production.
