Tissue Culture Clonal Propagation of Hybrid White Oaks for the Urban Environment

A tissue culture system was developed to clonally propagate a series of hybrid white oaks at the plant breeding program of the Urban Horticulture Institute (UHI), Cornell University to provide a path for cultivar development for plants belonging to the genus Quercus.

Is the recommended pH for growing hardwood seedlings wrong?

Two schools of thought address the optimum soil pH (measured in water) for growing hardwood seedlings in bareroot nurseries. One school uses nutrient surveys in non-fertilized forests to determine

Gibberellic Acid 4+7 Influences Shoot Growth of Seedling Pecan and Bitternut Hickory

Shoot development of seedling hickories is slow, limiting their success as viable crops using standard growing techniques. Because hickories are predominantly propagated by seed, we questioned


Clonal propagation of oak hybrids using a modified layering technique.

Results suggest the shoots of the hybrids that are the progeny of rhizomatous shrub Quercus spp.
