The Roots of a Jack Pine Tree
Abstract:Very little is known of the root habits of forest trees. On theoretical grounds it is often supposed that on dry soils the root system is deep; on moist soils that it is more shallow. In this article the root system of jack pine, growing on dry sandy soil is traced out and shown to be very wide-spreading but not very deep.
