Description: Landowners are interested in extending the normal planting season, as well as the comparative field performance, of nursery bare-root seedlings and containerized rooted cuttings. The effect of seasonal planting dates on field performance of two stock types of slash pine (Pinus elliottii Engelm.) was examined. Slash pine bare-root seedlings (BRS) and containeized rooted cuttings (CRC) were hand planted in September, November, January, March and April in 2000-2001, 2001-2002, and in 2002-2003 on three poorly drained silt loam sites in western Louisiana. Stock types were planted in adjacent row plots and treated identically after planting. Thus far, mean survival of CRC is consistently high at 96 percent, whereas BRS survival is significantly lower at 78 percent and highly variable across planting dates and years. Height growth of trees planted in September, November, and January was significantly higher than that for trees planted in March and April.
