Title: Biomass and Nutrient Distribution in 3-Year Old Green Ash and Swamp Chestnut Oak Grown in a Minor Stream Bottom

Author: Kennedy, Harvey E.; Schlaegel, Bryce E.;

Date: 1985

Source: In: Proceedings of the Third Biennial Southern Silvicultural Research Conference. Gen. Tech. Rep. SO-GTR-54. New Orleans, LA: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Southern Forest Experiment Station: 507-513.

Publication Series: Paper (invited, offered, keynote)

Description: After three growing seasons, green ash had produced 7,342 pounds per acre of above-ground dry matter compared to 3,572 for oak. Of the total biomass, ash had 53% in the bole (wood plus bark), 22% in old branches, 21% in leaves and 4% in new growth; oak had 50%, 21%, 24%, and 5% in the same components. These proportions changed after leaf fall. Concentrations of N, P, K, and Mg followed the general order of: leaves > new growth> bole bark and branch bark> bole wood and branch wood. Calcium concentrations were highest in bole bark and branch bark followed by leaves, new growth, and bole wood and branch wood.

Keywords: green ash
