Title: Pruning Cottonwood
Author: Johnson, R. L.;
Source: Southern Lumberman April 15. 2 p.
Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)
Description: Planting cottonwood trees can be a profitable investment, but to get the most for their money land-owners should consider the possibilities of pruning. At present, there are wide differentials in the stumpage value of cottonwood stands, primarily because of variation in log quality. By restricting knots to the inner core, artificial pruning of small open-grown trees can markedly improve the grade of future butt logs-and also improve the prices these logs will bring.
