Description: In a study at the Beltsville, Md., Experimental Forest in 1953 and 1954, the seed of Virginia pine (Pinus virginiana Mill.) became at least 45 percent viable 8 weeks before the natural opening of cones. Because seedfall in that locality usually starts during the first or second week of November, it was concluded that cone collecting could begin there safely in early September (1).
