Pruning in Young Plantations
Abstract:In this article the author describes an experiment which was carried on with four groups of twelve trees each to determine to what extent the living crown of a tree could be reduced by pruning without seriously curtailing height growth. Thinning was based on the depth of the crown at various per cents of the total height of the trees.
