sufficient moisture to drive maximum shoot extension ( Alvim and Alvim, 1978 ). The terms “planting check” ( Mullin, 1963 ) and “transplant shock” ( Watson, 1986 ) have been used to refer to periods of prolonged reductions of top growth, which are presumably

and 2.3 cm in trunk diameter in 3 years. Despite the lack of measurable differences, visual observations indicated that field-grown trees were slower to establish and recover from transplant shock; i.e., wilting was noted only on field-grown trees

transplant shock with turfgrass color and quality loss after transplanting ( Giese et al., 1997 ). A similar response has been observed with buffalograss plugs, but prerooted plugs successfully avoid this problem ( Johnson et al., 1997 ). Difficulties in

greenhouse-grown plants may have had a competitive advantage in terms of reduced transplant shock and better initial growth after transplanting because they had intact roots and actively growing tops. There are sufficient differences in the literature to
