DescriptionStump sprouts of both swamp (Nyssa sylvatica var. biflora (Walt.) Sarg.) and water (N. aquatica L.) tupelo can produce seeds two years after sprouting. For both species, seeds of tree origin are heavier and shoots of resulting seedlings are initially taller than those of sprout origin, but after one year seedlings of the two origins are not significantly different in shoot length and total weight. Thus, if seed crops are poor or fail to germinate after harvesting, stump sprouts can provide a suitable seed source within two years.
