The relationship between weather conditions and the growth of trees always has been of great interest to foresters, but it has not been investigated with sufficient accuracy or thoroughness to enable an understanding of the many puzzling growth phenomena which are often observed. Correlations have been demonstrated between weather conditions and growth in both height and diameter. While no attempt has been made in this paper to review the extensive and well known literature on this subject, it is of interest to note that, in general, the best correlations have been secured when the particular factor investigated was a limiting factor.
