Reproductive buds were initiated concurrently with the development of roots on cuttings of western hemlock (Tsugaheterophylla) set in a rooting bed. The ovulate cones were pollinated the following spring and cones from most cuttings produced viable seeds. The subsequent growth of the seedlings was good.
