Abstract:
This study was conducted to measure the effects of thinning coppice on Emory oak (Quercus emoryi). Thinning treatments were applied to sprouts of different ages. Height and diameter measurements were taken immediately after thinning and again one year later. Sprouts were classified into 5 age groups, 4 stump diameter groups, and 4 residual sprout groups. The interactions of these treatments and their effect on volume growth were analyzed. The results showed volume growth per stump was directly related to the number of sprouts per stump; volume growth per sprout was inversely related to the number of sprouts per stump; volume growth per stump and per sprout were both significantly affected by the age of the sprout at the time of thinning; and that stump diameter size had no significant effect on volume growth.
