Title: Evaluation of Animal Hazard to Spot-Seeded White Ash In Central Tennessee

Author: Russell, T.E.;

Date: 1976

Source: Res. Note SO-213. New Orleans, LA: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Southern Forest Experiment Station. 3 p.

Publication Series: Research Note (RN)

Description: Screen protection of seedspots more than doubled white ash seedling establishnient on forested sites of the Cumberland Plateau. For 3 years seeds were sown in fall and spring and given either no protection, or covered with 1-inch mesh screen, or covered with ΒΌ-inch mesh hardware cloth. Unprotected seeds and those covered with 1-inch mesh screen suffered heavy depredations each year. Although white ash can be protected from animals, successful seeding will require improved seed treatments and seedling techniques. Even where animals were excluded, poor germination caused unsatisfactory seedspot stocking in a number of trials.

Keywords: Fraxinus americana, artificial regeneration of hardwoods, direct seeding, animal damage
