Title: Diameter Growth of Southern Bottomland Hardwoods
Author: Bull, Henry;
Source: Journal of Forestry 43(5):326-327
Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)
Description: There is very little published information on average rates of diameter growth of southern bottomland hardwoods. Probably the best information of this kind is given by Winters, Putnam, and Eldredge,2 who summarize forest survey data on average rates of diameter growth for 4 size classes and 20 species or species groups (including pine and cyress), and for all species together by 5 forest conditions. Diameter growth in 10 years was found to vary from 0.90 inch for cypress 30 or more inches in diameter breast high to 4.34 inches for cottonwood 6 to 12 inches in diameter. The average for all species, sizes, and conditions was about 2.0 inches, and the average for all second growth of sawlog size was about 2.7 inches.
