Mechanical site preparation by mini excavator (ME) and crawler tractor by ripper (CTR) were compared for seed height and root-collar diameter, and survival in one year Pinus brutia afforestation. CTR had higher seedling height (16.6 cm) and root-collar diameter (3.44 mm), and survival (27%) than ME (15.2 cm and 3.21 mm, and 22%), while the methods were similar (p> 0.05) according to results of analysis of variance. Results of analysis of correlation showed statistically significant (p< 0.01) and positive relations between seed height and root-collar diameter in both methods. The results had first year data at the areas. New studies could be concluded for future years.
