Description: Large Cherrybark oak (Q. pagoda Raf.) grown for two years (1997 and 1998) were hoedad planted in bottomlands near Columbia, South Carolina. Successful oak plantations exist from planted bareroot cherrybark oak seedlings with heights below 50 centimeters, but costly efforts were often employed to ensure success. To overcome competing vegetation, seedlings greater than 1 meter are essential, but the roots of large oak seedlings present obstacles to planting. The one-liter, perforated container was designed to promote fine, feeder roots to penetrate outside of the container, and to restrict woody root formation at the soil-container interface. After two nursery growing seasons, there were no significant differences in survival, but yield favored conventional bareroot seedlings of 100 per square meter. Field survival of containerized seedlings after two years were significantly greater than bareroot seedlings, compensating for the higher cost of containerized seedlings. Seedlings from containerized stock of 100 per square meter also showed the greatest significant yield by year two.
