Abstract

Preliminary tests of spraying unwanted side branches with amyl 2, 4, 5-T gave promising results with Poplars, but less so with epicormic branches of Oak. If successful, this method will result in a great saving in manpower for pruning. KEYWORDS: Populus \ hybrids \ commercial hybrids \ pruning \...

F.A. 9 No. 1455; 15 No. 1116], might be able to withstand moisture stress better than P. sitchensis and so find a place in E. England, though its reported performance in Denmark...
