Title: Coppicing to convert small cull trees to growing stock

Author: Walters, Gerald A.

Date: 1972

Station ID: RN-PSW-272

Description: Several tree species are now being planted in Hawaii to reforest areas on which firetree (Myrica faya Ait.)-a plant pest of little commercial value-has been killed. The potential of converting cull trees of five of the replacement species into growing stock trees by coppicing was evaluated. Australian toon and tropical ash showed the greatest potential for conversion; hoop-pine and Moreton-Bay-chestnut, intermediate potential; and Queensland-maple, least potential. Stump decay was not a factor with any species. And pruning paint did not affect decay or sprout behavior in any species.
