Regenerating Cottonwood from Natural Seedfall
Abstract:On moist sites with an adequate seed source, eastern cottonwood can be regenerated by plowing parallel ditches about 8 inches deep and 6 feet wide. Ditches are most successful in forested areas (excluding old fields) and in silt or sandy loam soils. They can be made with a bulldozer blade or giant plow at one-third to one-half the cost of planting.
