Title: 21-Year Growth and Development of Baldcypress Planted on a Flood-Prone Site

Author: Krinard, Roger M.; Johnson, Robert L.;

Publication Series: Research Note (RN)

Description: Baldcypress is a good species to plant on sites where prolonged flooding is common and few other species can survive. When planted on a site where flooding had repeatedly killed cottonwood plantations, cypress survival at age 21 averaged about 41 percent; average diameter was about 6.1 inches. Some of the cypress was suppressed by other hardwoods such as ash and boxelder. Diameters of the best 10 percent of the cypress trees averaged 11.1 inches at age 21. Thus, mean annual diameter growth of these trees was 0.53 - considerably more than the 0.32 inch per year estimated for dominant trees in natural stands during their prime development period.

Keywords: Taxodium distichum, artificial regeneration, diameter increment
