Description: In natural stands near Demopolis Lock and Dam Reservoir in Alabama, the average growth in tree radius increased about 50 percent in the 5 years after the water table was raised from an indefinite depth to within reach of the tree roots. In natural stands near the Jim Woodruff Reservoir in Florida, radial growth of trees also increased markedly after the water table was raised, but only when no sediment was deposited around the trees.
Keywords: Tree growth, sedimentation, water impoundment
