First-lift pruning times of Radiata Pine seedlings and rooted cuttings in a small California experiment.

K. Tufuor and W. J. Libby



Radiata pine trees of rooted-cutting and seedling origin were pruned to a height of 1.5 metres six years after planting. It was demonstrated that the pruning times for the trees grown from rooted cuttings were consistently and significantly less than for their seedling-origin relatives. Trees grown from cuttings had fewer and smaller branches, less taper, and smaller knotty cores.
