DescriptionEnvironmental factors influencing natural regeneration of swamp tupelo were examined in a study involving five harvest treatments replicated in 3 successive years. Initial seedling establishment was related to seed production, but other factors probably are more limiting in most years. Abundance of established seedlings differed significantly with harvest cuttings, probably because of temperature and shading effects. Year of cutting also led to significant differences in number of seedlings established, which probably resulted from effects of water table levels in the swamp. Because competition from other vegetation is abundant, the adequacy of regeneration established cannot be assessed at present.
