Photosynthetic response to green crown pruning in young plantation-grown Eucalyptus pilularis and E. cloeziana

Alcorn, Philip; Bauhus, Juergen; Thomas, Dane S; James, Ryde; Smith, Geoff B.; Nicotra, Adrienne


The loss of foliage through pruning of live branches may reduce tree growth or it may be compensated by photosynthetic up-regulation of the remaining crown. Here, the changes in light-saturated photosynthesis following pruning to remove 50% of green crown length were examined in 4-year-old Eucalyptus pilularis Sm. and Eucalyptus cloeziana F. Muell. trees. The objectives of the study were to: (1) compare leaf-level physiological (light-saturated photosynthesis (Amax), stomatal conductance (g),...[Show more]
