    Description

    A study of epicormic sprouting in pole-size sugar maples showed that all visible dormant buds on the bole were capable of producing epicormic shoots. The buds were induced to break dormancy by applying four methods of crown removal known to stimulate sprouting. The amount of crown removed determined the year that the buds broke dormancy; this may be accounted for by the location of growth regulators at the time of treatment. Few buds broke dormancy on untreated trees, indicating that the crown exerts a major influence on the formation of epicormic shoots.
