Watering Plantation Trees
Abstract:Low survival in regions with exceedingly dry summers has long been a serious obstacle to successful planting. This article gives the results of different degrees of watering in a part of California where the total rainfall for June, July, and August is only 3/4 inch. Highly satisfactory survival was obtained by watering during the first summer only. The practice is not suggested for extensive state and national-forest planting but is considered feasible for farm, windbreak, erosion-control, and similar intensive reforestation.
