Introduction trial of Acacia sieberiana in Bihar

Indian Journal of Forestry 16(4): 347-349

Introduction trial of Acacia sieberiana in Bihar

Trials have been conducted with Acacia sieberiana, a native of Senegal, in Ranchi, Bihar. The species was first introduced in 1970 and was again tried in 1986, from the seeds obtained from the 1970 plantation. The mortality was 30-45%. Growth data are given for the 22 and 5.5-yr-old plantations, and compared with data for Acacia auriculiformis. The data suggest that A. sieberiana performs best in terms of annual volume increment.
