Title: Ring Counts in Second-Growth Baldcypress

Author: Beaufait, W. R.; Nelson, T. C.;

Date: 1957

Source: Journal of Forestry 55(8): 588

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Many thrifty, second-growth baldcypress trees (Taxodium distichum) [L.] Rich. ) appear to lay down several rings each year. These false rings may cause foresters to underestimate the growth potential of a highly prized species by overestimating the age of sample trees.
