Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: A series of experiments was conducted over 4 years to test and develop methods to produce acceptable red alder planting stock and to assess quality and outplanting performance of resulting stock. Results indicated that red alder planting stock can be produced as containerized seedlings (plugs) or as bare-root nontransplant and transplant trees. In general, bare-root stock is larger and, hence, preferred over containerized trees, especially for planting on harsh sites or on any site where time considerations are important.

Keywords: Red alder planting stock, seedling characteristics, outplanting performance
