The correlation between branching and the tree growth of Hevea brasiliensis (Muell. Arg.)

, : The correlation between branching and the tree growth of Hevea brasiliensis (Muell. Arg.). Journal of the Rubber Research Institute of Sri Lanka 77: 77-92

Considerable variation in branching habit was observed among trees within different Hevea clones planted in clearings. Some clones such as RRIC 121 showed less branching than other clones such as RRIC 100, indicating that branching is also a clonal characteristic. Canopy architecture also showed differences among trees within a clone. A highly significant positive correlation was observed between the number of branches and tree girth for all clones tested for trees aged from 1 year to 7 years.
