DescriptionThree green ash (Fraxinus pennsylvanica Marsh.) plantings, ages 11, 13, and 15, and a 13-year-old pumpkin ash (F. profunda (Bush) Bush) planting were sampled to determine d.b.h. and height development and survival of free-to-grow trees. On medium-textured (Commerce) and clay-capped (Bowdre and Tunica) soils, the average d.b.h. and height mean annual increments (m.a.i.`s) for ash were about 0.5 inch/year and 4 feet/year. M.a.i. values for ash on Sharkey clay were 0.3 inch/year and 2.5 feet/year. Survival was 85+ percent.
