Abstract

Increasing the spacing of container-grown trees increased trunk caliper and taper, but growth in height was less than those spaced can-to-can. At the closest spacings, the lower foliage was sparse, giving the trees a Ieggy appearance. Adequate spacing (about twice the can-to-can area) gave benefits of increased trunk caliper and taper, and fuller foliage with a minimum sacrifice in height.
