germination stimulates lateral root formation. Similarly, little work has been attempted to consider the effects of taproot pruning in young pecan seedlings back to different lengths on root regeneration. The objective of this study was to determine if root

nursery, taproots circle around when they reach the bottom of the container. Establishment becomes a challenge for roots in such conditions ( Amoroso et al., 2010 ). The malformation can be corrected by pruning the deformed root to allow a better root

-order lateral roots. The type and size of lateral roots may also govern seedling establishment after transplanting. Coarse lateral roots arising from pruning sites as a result of undercutting in the field, sometimes referred to as wound roots or taproot branches

-month-old cuttings. Vegetative propagation has been effective whether using short 5-cm sections in mist beds or by air-layering older stems ( Shi and Brewbaker, 2006 ). To achieve strong taproot development (characteristic of leucaenas), these propagules are wisely
