Abstract

Tests the effects of fall versus spring planting of Chionanthus virginicus in Blacksburg, Virginia. Fall planting resulted in increased growth compared to spring planting. Root growth outside of the original root ball did not occur until July. Initial irrigation should focus on the rootball rather than surrounding soil areas.
