Effect of Chemical Stimulation of Gum Flow on Carbohydrate Reserves in Slash Pine
The gum naval stores producers, faced with increasing competition from wood naval stores and petroleum products, are paying particular attention to improvement of their competitive position through more efficient methods of production. The most promising technique now available for raising efficiency in gum naval stores operations is the application of acid to the fresh wound to increase the rate and duration of gum flow. This article gives assurance that acid treatment does not impoverish the food reserves of the trees, and may actually increase them.
