Growth Response of White Pine in the Southern Appalachians to Green Pruning
Abstract:It is recognized that too severe pruning of live limbs may seriously reduce the growth rate of a tree and handicap it in the struggle for survival. On the other hand, successive light prunings cost more than one or two heavier prunings. This paper is a 5-year progress report on the results of an experiment to determine the effects of varying degrees of green pruning on subsequent growth.
