Description: Cutting cycle significantly affected total aboveground dry-weight yields, which were greater with the 2-, 3-, and 4-year cycles than with the I-year. For all cutting cycles, significantly higher yields were obtained with 2- by 5-foot spacings than with 4 by 5. Dry-weight yields ranged from 3,229 pounds per acre per year for the I-year cutting cycle spaced at 4 by 5 feet to 7,210 pounds for the 3- year cycle at 2 by 5 feet. No interaction was detected between spacing and cutting cycle.
Keywords: Platanus occidentalis, silage sycamore, short-rotation, juvenile wood
