Abstract:

Growth rates increased in 1/5-ac plots after thinning in four out of five pondcypress swamps in Florida. Trees in the more heavily thinned plots (70 and 110 ft²/ac) usually had faster growth rates than those in the more lightly thinned plots (150 ft²/ac). Rates of increase in total basal area in thinned plots were not large enough to be economically meaningful. Trees in unthinned plots grew in basal area at an average rate of 1.2% annually. South. J. Appl. For. 16(4):175-177
