Stocking Guides for Water Tupelo and Baldcypress
Abstract:Stocking guides for water tupelo (Nyssa aquatica L.) and baldcypress (Taxodium distichum (L.) Rich.) were developed from published tables of hypothetical stocking and stand development. The form of the stocking guide follows the established paradigm, although the "B"-line is based on the suggested residual stocking in the published table rather than on minimum full stocking determined by open-grown crown area. The stocking guides for water tupelo and baldcypress suggest much greater stand densities than a similar guide for southern bottomland hardwoods. The stocking guides may be used to aid in marking a stand for thinning or to describe stand density for other timber and non-timber management activities. South. J. Appl. For. 19(3):105-108.
