Root-Collar Diameter and Third-Year Survival of Three Bottomland Hardwoods Planted on Former Agricultural Fields in the Lower Mississippi Alluvial Valley

Gardiner, E. S., Jacobs, D. F., Overton, R. P., and Her­nandez, G. USDA Forest Service, Rocky Mountain Re­search Station, Proceedings RMRS-P-58. p.85-89. Na­tional Proceedings: Forest and Conservation Nursery Association - 2008. 2009.

Athough the Lower Mississippi Alluvial Valley (LMAV) has experienced substantial afforestation of former agricultural fields during the past 2 decades, seedling standards that support satisfactory outplanting performance of bottomland hardwood tree species are not available. A series of experimental plantations, established on three afforestation sites in the LMAV, provided an opportunity to examine relationships between initial root-collar diameter and the probability of third-year survival for Nuttall oak (Quercus nuttallii), sweet pecan (Carya illinoensis), and green ash (Fraxinus pennsylvanica).
