Description: Up to 16 weeks of soil saturation from the time of planting did not significantly affect survival, date of bud-break, or initiation of height growth of sycamore, sweetgum, and Nuttall oak seedlings. But when soil temperatures were rapidly increasing in mid-April, saturation for more than 10 to 12 weeks did severely reduce height, root, and stem-diameter growth. Saturation was more detrimental in Commerce silt loam than in Sharkey clay.
