Notes: Freeze-Crack-Related Measurements on Platanus x acerifolia Trees
Abstract:For four consecutive winters, stem temperature, stem shrinkage, and widths of freeze cracks were measured on London plane trees, Platanus x acerifolia, in Urbana, Illinois. At temperatures below 0°C, trunk shrinkage and widths of freeze cracks were substantial and inversely correlated with temperature. Wood shrinkage was greater in trees with cracks than in trees without cracks. For. Sci. 33(1):239-244.
