Abstract

Early fruiting of swamp white oak planting stock has been observed. The potential to exploit this trait for wildlife enhancement purposes was evaluated in a grafting study. Scions from both precocious and non-precocious ortets were grafted onto a series of related seedling rootstock sources. Acorn production was recorded through age 4 years. Acorn productivity of the grafts was identical to their ortet rankings for cumulative acorn production over a 5-year period when graft productivity was standardized on a trunk crosssectional area basis.
