Growth of redwood (Sequoia sempervirens) stump sprouts was monitored for 31 years. Thinning of sprouts at two years of age accelerated growth of those that received full sunlight at the time of thinning. Conversely, sprouts receiving only moderate light and some competition from surrounding vegetation grew at a significantly faster rate when unthinned than when thinned--an indication that where light is limiting some minimal number of sprouts is necessary to maintain a healthy stump-root system. In clumps receiving minimal light, many residual sprouts died after thinning.
