Title: Extended Planting Seasons for Sycamore and Cottonwood

Author: Briscoe, C. B.;

Date: 1973


Publication Series: Forest Economic Report

Description: Cuttings of sycamore and cottonwood can be planted successfully in wet soil from October until bud break in the spring. Sycamore seedlings can be planted all year if available soil moisture exceeds evapotranspiration. Dormant seedlings survived summer planting better than did freshly lifted seedlings.

Keywords: Platanus occidentalis, Populus deltoides, planting time
