Occasional Paper
Jenifer J. White
1990
This Occasional Paper is a literature review which was undertaken in 1984 to establish what is known about tree root systems, their size in relation to the shoot and the nutrient/moisture status needed for good root regeneration after planting. The specific objectives of the review were:
1. to prepare a report summarising the available in formation and highlighting deficiencies in knowledge;
2. to identify research needs in tree and shrub production and handling;
3. to make amendments to the specification for roots in the Plant Supply Tender Document (Joint Liaison Committee on Plant Supply 1982) and BS 3936 (1966, 1978 and 1980).
