Title: Rooting Depths of Red Maple (Acer Rubrum L.) on Various Sites in the Lake States

Author: Haag, Carl L.; Johnson, James E.; Erdmann, Gayne G.;

Date: 1989

Source: Research Note NC-347. St. Paul, MN: U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, Forest Service, North Central Forest Experiment Station

Publication Series: Research Note (RN)

Description: Rooting depth and habit of red maple were observed on 60 sites in northern Wisconsin and Michigan as part of a regional soil-site studay. Vertical woody root extension on dry, outwash sites averaged 174 cm, which was significantly greater than the extension on sites with fragipans (139 cm) and on wet sites (112 cm). Site index was higher on wet sites and non-woody root tans proliferated in the subirrigated zone there. Non-woody root fans were observed at depths approaching 3 m on dry, sandy sites.

Keywords: Rooting habit, root system morphology, rooting patterns, non-woody root fans
