I planted about 800 pine seedlings about 3 weeks ago just before we got 2 inches of ice and 3 to 4 inches of snow that stayed around for over a week and now all of my seedlings are turning brown except for the very top.
does anyone have experience with this? are they dead, should I replant?
thanks

Planted about 50,000 Dec. 24, 26, 27, or at least a dozen Guatemalans did. The seedlings browned up, except for the terminal, long before the recent ice/snow event. Some few were already dead before—but, I didn’t see any appreciable additional mortality. I’m sure yours will be fine.

I am really interested in what your seedlings do in the next couple months. Let us know if they survive please.
it looks like most of the trees will live, at this point id say 90% are still alive and 80% have put on new growth. the needles are of course still brown but the tops are green (some just barely) and putting out some new candles. I hope the survival rate will be pretty normal.
