Pine Genetics and Studies Update Workshop

Zoom Webinar Format

Date: 08/05/2021 from 08:45 am to 11:15 am


Brochure with agenda and mail-in registration form


Please Note: This course has been reduced to two hours. There is no cost, but you STILL MUST SIGN UP in order to receive a link to log into the updated course.

Individuals interested in reforestation of lands they manage or own are increasingly faced with more genetic options offered by nurseries that produce southern pine seedlings. Loblolly pine has the most options available for purchase followed by slash and longleaf pine, but advances are continually being made with the latter two species. Participants will leave the meeting with knowledge on how to compare seedling Performance Rating Sheets, seedling size and quality characteristics, and a basic understanding of the levels of seedlings genetics. Survival and growth results from several past and ongoing genetic trials will provide performance metrics of various levels of seedling genetics when growing side-by-side on the same or similar sites.
Participants will learn:
  • Pine genetics background, performance rating sheets and considerations for seedling size and quality
  • Survival and growth performance results from several loblolly and slash pine genetics trials
How One Will Benefit
Upon completion of this meeting, a forest landowner or land manager will be able to make more informed decisions when selecting and purchasing loblolly, slash, and longleaf pine seedlings for reforestation efforts.
Who Should Attend?
Foresters, land managers, forest landowners, industry representatives and others interested in artificially regenerating pine in the Coastal Plain and Piedmont regions.
