Title: Coppice Regeneration in Water Tupelo--Does It Work?

Author: Kennedy, Harvey E.;

Date: 1977

Source: Stoneville, MS: USDA-Forest Service, Southern Forest Experiment Station. 9 p.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication (MISC)

Description: In the lower Atchafalaya Basin, water tupelo trees were cut in May and November at three stump heights to study coppice regeneration. Sprouting was extremely good after one growing season, and live sprouts grew well through the third and fourth growing seasons. However, some stumps began to deteriorate and sprouts die after the second growing season. After 6 years, only 9 percent of the stumps cut in May and 18 percent of those cut in November had live sprouts.
