Buy Article:


Increment cores from 100-year-old pondcypress trees in a Florida cypress strand indicate that wastewater from a municipal septic tank increased tree growth rates (measured as basal area increment per tree) two-fold over a 41-year period. These trees were 55 to 60 years old when wastewater flow began. Trees in a nearby undisturbed cypress dome showed no such increase in growth rate. Forest Sci. 28:400-403.
