June 8, 2021 - Report provides two-year results of a test to compare loblolly pine seedlings propagated in containers to those raised in traditional beds and planted “bare-root” in October, November, December, February, March, and April. Container seedlings survived and grew well if planted in the fall or spring but not in winter, while bare-root seedlings performed acceptably at all planting dates.
