DescriptionOn a site where the water table always was within the root zone, thinning had little effect on diameter growth of white ash or sweetgum but increased the growth of baldcypress. Thinning did not extend durating of growth into the fall, nor was growth related to seasonal fluctuations in the water table. In ash and sweetgum, growth initiation seemed related to soil temperature; in baldcypress, to day length.
