Abstract
Six experiments carried out at the E.A.A.F.R.O. Estate Muguga (Kenya) over a period of three years with the species Pinus patula, P. radiata and P. leiophylla, have shown that deep planting (burying up to 50 percent of the stem) produced no deleterious effect on the survival percentage and resulted in a stimulation of height growth in the first year of the order of 20 percent. It is possible that the beneficial effects of deep planting may be greater in areas which have even more unreliable climates.
