Epicormic Branching of Black and White Oaks
Abstract:The number and distribution of epicormic branches that developed on dominant and codominant Quercus alba L. and Q. velutina Lam. following thinning in a 55-year-old stand were more closely related to the number and distribution of pretreatment live branches than to the level of residual stand density or the vigor of the sample trees. It is believed that the tendency to initiate epicormics is influenced genetically to a considerable extent.
