Dormant, girdled and ungirdled one-year-old Fraxinus americana seedlings were grown under high and low light intensities to determine the contribution of storage products and current photosynthate to early shoot growth. Dry weight of new shoots and width of new xylem both were greater in seedlings grown under high light intensities. The data show that current photosynthate is the major contributor to the early development of the shoot system.
