Title: Planting Season for Cottonwood Can Be Extended
Author: Kennedy, Harvey E.;

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)
Description: Cottonwood cuttings planted as early as November and as late as May survive and grow well if sufficient soil moisture is available and cuttings are properly handled. About 6 inches or more of well distributed rainfall is needed in September and October to recharge Commerce soil. If these two months are dry, planting should be delayed. In March or later, cuttings should not be planted during dry spells of two weeks or longer. Early planting does not significantly improve root development but does give the trees a growth advantage in the first year.
