Title: Growth response of black walnut to interplanted trees

Author: Schlesinger, Richard C.; Williams, Robert D.;

Date: 1984

Source: Forest Ecology and Management. 9: 235-243.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Analyses of black walnut tree diameters 13 years after planting showed that interplanting autumn-olive, black locust, and European alder increased walnut tree growtb, but only at certain locations. Interplanting autumn-olive resulted in increases of 56 to 351% at four of five locations and all species resulted in doubled walnut growth on an upland site. The interaction between treatment and location indicates that a fuller understanding of site and nurse species characteristics is needed to obtain the potential benefits of mixed plantings.
