DescriptionAverage survival at age 16 was determined for five hardwood species that received no weed control after planting at 10- by 10-foot spacing on cleared Sharkey clay soil. The average survival rates, in percent, were: sweetgum (Liquidambar styraciflua L.), 35; cottonwood (fopulus delfoides Bartr. ex Marsh.), 45; Nuttall oak (Quercus nuttalli Palmer) and sycamore (Platanus occidentalis L.), 81; and green ash (Fraxinus pennsylvanica Marsh.), 96. Corresponding average heights, in feet, were: 25, 41, 20, 29, and 27.
