RM-RP-114: Scotch pine for the northern Great Plains

Cunningham, Richard A. 1973. Scotch pine for the northern Great Plains. Res. Pap. RM-114. Fort Collins, CO: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Rocky Mountain Forest and Range Experiment Station. 11 p .

A provenance test of 49 origins of Scotch pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) from eastern Europe, Russia, and Siberia was established at three locations in North Dakota and one in Nebraska. After 10 years (7 in Nebraska), trees from 50º to 55º latitude and 20º to 40º longitude survived best, were taller, and had greener winter foliage. Several provenances appear to be well suited for planting in shelterbelts and for Christmas tree culture.

Keywords: geographic variation, provenance trials, Pinus sylvestris
