The Use of Tree Shelters in Restoring Forest Species to a Floodplain Delta: 5 Year Results

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The use of tree shelters to enhance survival and growth of bald cypress, water tupelo, green ash, and black tupelo were evaluated in the riparian and swamp forest of the Pen Branch delta. Survival at the end of the five years ranged from 67% to 100% for seedlings in shelters and 2% to 90% for those in the open. Mortality resulted primarily from beavers. Height growth was only improved for seedlings in shelters for the first few years.
