The survival of conifer roots under winter conditions is not well understood. The effect of long-lasting freezing at extremely low temperatures on the survival of the roots of Scots pine (Pinussylvestris L.) seedlings from a timberline seed source was studied. One-year-old containerized seedlings were kept for 4 months under winter conditions typical of the subarctic region. The freezing treatment was accelerated by preventing snow accumulation on half of the seedlings. The proportion of living… CONTINUE READING
