Relation of the Root System of a Sprouting Stump in Quercus Montana Willd. To that of an Undisturbed Tree
Abstract:The effect of any improvement cutting made within the extensive hardwood forests of the eastern United States may be destroyed by the ability of the component species to sprout. Sprouting indicates that only a portion of the root system dies when the parent tree is cut. This paper describes an attempt to learn how extensive this dying may be. A root crown ratio and the ratio between leaf area of the parent tree and that of the first year sprouts are also presented.
