Description: Two-year-old seedlings grown from seed outdoors in three southwestern Oregon soils were excavated to determine their root development. Roots of Douglas-fir, ponderosa pine, sugar pine, grand fir, and incense-cedar seedlings differed substantially in total extent, form, and balance in relation to tops. Information on the natural development of roots provides a benchmark for judging how much root development of nursery stock is altered.
