Abstract

Nursery managers in the Pacific Northwest have decades of experience growing pine seedlings in containers. This wealth of information may benefit the South's newly emerging longleaf pine (Pinus palustris Mill.) container nursery industry. Container seedling root morphology, seedling nutrition, and integrated pest management (sanitation, chemical control, proper irrigation, disinfestation of seeds and containers) are pertinent to successful production of high-quality seedlings.
