Effect of soil density on the growth of the root systems of tree seedlings



Effect of soil density on the growth of the root systems of tree seedlings



Lesovedenie ( 4): 74-78



Seedlings of Picea abies, Larix sibirica, Pinus sylvestris, Betula pendula, Quercus robur and Tilia cordata were grown in soils of density 1.2, 1.3..1.9 g/cmsuperscript 3. Data are presented on depth of root penetration and total root biomass. In terms of root growth rate and the ability to penetrate dense soil layers, oak and larch were the best and spruce and lime were the poorest species.
