Bark structure and mode of canopy regeneration in trees of Melia azedarach L.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The bark texture of Melia azedarach L. changes from smooth to furrowed as trees age. In trees that were cut down, those with smooth bark sprouted below the cut from suppressed buds; trees with thick, furrowed bark sprouted at the edge of the cut surface from adventitious buds. The trees that had thin, furrowed bark sprouted mainly at the edge of the cut from adventitious buds, but sometimes also from suppressed buds in cracks. The relationship between sprouting pattern and tree architecture are discussed.
