dc.description.abstractBareroot, conventional containerized, and large potted EKOgrown® seedlings of water oak (Quercus nigra) and white oak (Q. alba) were planted on two Hurricane Katrina damaged sites in south Mississippi. After two growing seasons, white oak exhibited greater survival (61.1%) than water oak (48.8%) and greater height growth (WHO = 7.4 cm, WAO = 1.4 cm). Water oak had greater groundline diameter (GLD) growth (3.3 mm) and greater second-year height growth (WHO = 2.5 cm, WAO = 9.6 cm). Second-year development could lead to greater height growth by water oak. Bareroot seedlings outperformed other planting stocks in survival and height growth, but EKO seedlings exhibited greater GLD growth. Even though EKO seedlings had greatest GLD growth, they exhibited the least overall height growth of all planting stocks (1.9 cm). Based on seedling cost and performance in this study, planting bareroot seedlings are the most efficient method to artificially regenerate oak forests.en_US
