Early Results of a Seed Source Study of Slash Pine in Georgia and Flordia

All southern foresters are aware of the extensive planting of slash pine in the South. Therefore, the need for information on racial variation in this species requires no elaboration. In 1953 the Lake City Research Center, in cooperation with other organizations 1/, began a study to get some of this needed information. The study complements the Southwide Pine Seed Source Study which incorporates six seed sources scattered throughout the range of slash pine. In contrast, the Lake City test contains more seed sources and covers only that portion of the species range occurring in Georgia and Florida.
