    Description

    Four pruning treatments have been applied for 5 years on cottonwood (Populus deltoides Bartr.) select clone Stoneville 66, planted at 40- by 40-ft spacing. As pruning severity increased, average diameter and maximum crown width decreased. Diameters ranged from 9.2 inches for trees pruned half of height yearly to 11.4 inches for unpruned trees; crown widths ranged from 16.5 to 24.6 ft.
