Nursery and site preparation treatments and their effects on performance of interior lodgepole pine seedlings

Series: Forest Investment Account (FIA) - Forest Science Program


Lodgepole pine seedlings were produced in Styroblocks', Copperblocks', or AirBlocks', inoculated or not with one of two ectomycorrhizal fungi, and planted under different site preparation treatments, including landing rehabilitation treatments. Frozen-stored seedlings were planted in the spring. Hot-lifted seedlings were planted in the summer. We request funds for the final analysis of data on hydraulic conductivity, root architecture and mycorrhizal colonization, for page charges for an extension paper that is already written, for the writing of four manuscripts on the detailed results of the project, and for a workshop to be presented to industrial and government foresters on the results.
