Those of New Jersey provenances were grown from cuttings gathered from healthy, native trees between 25 and 60 years of age, as determined by increment coring, from Lebanon State Forest, Belleplain State Forest, and High Point State Park, located in southern, central, and northern New Jersey, respectively.
Survival for the North Carolina population (88%) was comparable to the survival rates for High Point State Park and Lebanon State Forest (both 88%) and higher than the rate for Belleplain State Forest (68%) (Table 2).
A significant difference was also found between the heights of the High Point State Park population and the Belleplain and Lebanon State Forest populations, with the Lebanon and Belleplain populations significantly taller.
