Effect of white latex paint on temperature of stone fruit tree trunks in winter



Effect of white latex paint on temperature of stone fruit tree trunks in winter



Journal of the American Society for Horticultural Science 100(2): 122-129



Nectarine and peach tree trunks painted on the sunlit side with white exterior-grade latex paint were found to be up to 30 deg C cooler than non-painted trunks during mid-winter in mid-latitudes. The dependency of the cambium temperature amelioration on wind speed and trunk diameter is indicated through an argument based on convective transfer theory.
