Abstract:Radial growth was studied in plantation-grown Pinus resinosa Air. trees on plots that differed in depth to water table. Trees on all plots had been fertilized with muriate of potash in 1952. The analyses of types I and II sequences revealed that there are inherent patterns in wood deposition that are quantitatively, but not qualitatively, influenced by the environment. The analysis of type III sequences showed that radial growth on plots in which depth to water table is great is stimulated to a greater degree by fertilization than those in which it is small. Major peaks and troughs in the type III sequence for all trees showed a high degree of concurrence, suggesting the usefulness of the type III sequences for environmental analyses of wood deposition in young trees.
