Variation Among Green Ash of Differing Geographic Origins Outplanted in Kansas    (View PDF)

Damian F. Bresnan, Wayne A. Geyer and G. Rink

Abstract: Green ash trees from 18 provenances were planted in a seed-source test in 1971 near Manhattan, Kansas, in the central part of the Great Plains Region. Most seed sources were from north of the planting site. After 20 years, growth measurements revealed that the tallest trees were from more southerly sources and/or those near the plantation site. Trees from moderate distances north (150 miles) of the planting site also showed adequate growth. Height and dbh age-age correlations were highly significant and increased when compared to age measurements of earlier intervals.
