Axillary bud induction protocols were developed for Pinus patula Schiede et Duppe juvenile shoots and seedling explants. Investigations involved the establishment of conditions for the highest in vitro shoot multiplication and in vitro and ex-vitro rooting frequencies. The developed protocols yield approximately six plantlets per explant.
