Competition in thinned Silvertop Ash (Eucalytptus sieberi L. Johnson) stands from early coppice growth.
Vigorous development of coppice shoots on the stumps of thinned trees may inhibit the growth of retained trees. This study examined the effects of thinning intensity and site quality on coppice growth in 18-23-year-old regrowth stands of Eucalyptus sieberi L. Johnson (Silvertop Ash), located in the Eden Region of southeastern New South Wales, Australia. To assess competition between coppice and the retained stand 2-3 years after thinning, basal area, leaf area, sapwood area and foliage nutrient...[Show more]
