Four outplanting experiments in the North Island of New Zealand were examined to determine the effects of stock size on survival and early height growth of rooted fascicle cuttings of Pinus radiata D. Don. Survival and third-year tree height were examined in relation to (a) initial diameter, (b) initial height, (c) initial diameter squared, (d) bulk index (diameter squared × height), and (e) sturdiness index (height/diameter). Of the five attributes examined, initial diameter was correlated… CONTINUE READING
