Seedling Genetics and Soil Fertility – Know What You are Planting and How to Car for It
September 16, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
During each rotation of a planted forest, landowners have a single opportunity to choose the appropriate genetics for their long-term investment. We encourage forest landowners to plant the best genetic quality seedlings possible. The benefits from establishing highly productive families, in combination with good silvicultural practices, will result in large financial returns. Nurseries grow loblolly pine seedlings that have a range in genetic quality. Information about the value of different seedling families can be sourced from seedling vendors as well as from tree improvement cooperatives. The cooperative provides a “third-party” assessment of the productivity, disease resistance, and stem quality of the many families that are available for purchase.
