Description: Abstract—In greentree reservoirs within the Mingo Basin in southeastern Missouri, we compared the survival and growth of underplanted pin oak (Quercus palustris Muenchh.) acorns, bareroot seedlings, and RPM® container seedlings in plots that were thinned with and without ground flora control. After one growing season, we found that RPM® container seedlings had the greatest survival (87 percent without ground flora control and 77 percent with) followed by bareroot seedlings (86 percent without ground flora control and 66 percent with). Survival of planted stock was similar to natural reproduction (85 percent in thinned-only plots, 60 percent where thinned with ground flora control and in untreated plots). Direct-seeded seedlings had the poorest survival (9 percent without ground flora control and 4 percent with). Diameter growth of planted stock was significantly less than that of direct-seeded or natural stock; height growth of bareroot stock was less than that of all others.
