Description: Three oak planting stocks were evaluated to determine their influence on survival and initial growth. Planting stocks utilized included conventional containerized seedlings in 240 centimeter3 (cm3) containers, 1-0, bareroot seedlings, and Root Production Method (RPM™) seedlings in 11.4 liter (L) containers. Initial height, groundline diameter (GLD), and survival were assessed after planting and at the conclusion of the first growing season. Species planted were swamp chestnut oak (Quercus michauxii Nutt.) and Nuttall oak (Q. texana Palmer). Study sites were located in southern Mississippi on lands disturbed by Hurricane Katrina. Statistical comparisons of growth and survival among species and planting stocks were performed. RPM™ and bareroot seedlings exhibited similar growth and survival, and both were greater than conventional containerized seedlings. Bareroot seedlings could be the most economically feasible planting stock to utilize for artificial oak regeneration.
