Description: Bare-root, container, and root production method (RPMTM) seedlings of Nuttall oak (Quercus texana Buckley) and cherrybark oak (Q. pagoda Ell.) were planted on lands damaged by Hurricane Katrina in southern Mississippi to compare the height growth, groundline diameter (GLD) growth, and survival of the different planting stocks. Two study areas were divided into three replicates containing six treatment combinations with 100 seedlings per replicate. Tree shelters were used on half of the bare-root seedlings to determine their effect on height, GLD growth, and survival of the seedlings. Height and GLD growth were greater in RPMTM seedlings compared to bare-root or container seedlings after one growing season. Bare-root seedlings exhibited greater height and GLD growth than container seedlings. Tree shelters increased height growth of bare-root seedlings; however, sheltered bare-root seedlings exhibited less GLD growth than unsheltered seedlings. Cherrybark oak exhibited greater height growth than Nuttall oak, whereas Nuttall oak exhibited greater GLD growth than cherrybark oak across all planting stocks. Th ere was no significant difference among the planting stocks after the first growing season.
