    Description

    From age 18 through age 23, average annual growth of planted sweetgum (Liquidambar styraciflua L.) on Commerce silt loam exceeded growth of sweetgum on Sharkey clay by about 45 percent in diameter at breast height (d.b.h.) and height, 75 percent in basal area, and more than three times in cubic volume. At age 18 on the Commerce soil, sycamore (Platanus occidentalis L.) was smaller in average d.b.h. but had greater average height and 5 to 15 percent more cubic volume per acre than sweetgum.
