Publication Series: Paper (invited, offered, keynote)

Description: In a surprisingly few years a major proportion of the South's timber stands will be artificially regenerated with selected or genetically improved stock. Success with southern pines and high stumpage prices for certain species will spur efforts in hardwood stands. Intensive hardwood forestry will require better methods of seed production and handling than those available today. The amount of time and money invested in producing improved lines dictates that all good seed be collected and that nothing happen during processing or treatment which will lower their quality. A lot is known about conifer seed but little about hardwood seed. Action, now, can solve some of the handling problems associated with hardwood seed before they become critical. The following pages describe present handling procedures; we will learn which ones must be improved and which areas require additional knowledge.

Keywords: Liquidambar styracifiua, Liriodendron tulipifera, Nyssa sylvatica var. bifiora
