Effect of Top Pruning on Survival and Early Growth of Black Locust
Abstract:Widely accepted and used practices, when critically studied, are often found to be wrong or partially wrong. The practice of top pruning black locust appears to fall in this category. The results of the author's careful study show that black locust planting stock, in general, should not be pruned unless pruning must be done to salvage top-damaged or poorly formed seedlings.
