Title: Associations of calcium and aluminum with the growth and health of sugar maple trees in Vermont

Author: Schaberg, Paul G.; Tilley, James W.; Hawley, Gary J.; DeHayes, Donald H.; Bailey, Scott W.;

Date: 2006

Source: Forest Ecology and Management. 223: 159-169.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: We compared tree growth and crown condition with soil and foliar elemental composition in 14 sugar maple (Acer saccharum Marsh.) stands in VT, USA, to evaluate if deficiencies or imbalances in cation nutrition were associated with growth and health reductions in native stands. The Till Source Model (TSM) was used to select study sites potentially high or low in calcium (Ca) by predicting the relative Ca concentration of soil parent material derived from glacial till. The TSM successfully identified high or low levels of soil Ca (P = 0.031) and foliar Ca (P = 0.011) among stands.

Keywords: calcium, aluminum, sugar maple, Acer saccharum, growth, decline
