Abstract

SETTE JUNIOR, Carlos Roberto; TOMAZELLO FILHO, Mario; LOUSADA, José Luis  and  LACLAU, Jean Paul. SEASONAL INCREMENT IN TRUNK DIAMETER OF Eucalyptus grandis TREES APPLYING DENDROMETER BANDS. Ciênc. Florest. [online]. 2012, vol.22, n.4, pp.763-775. ISSN 0103-9954.  http://dx.doi.org/10.5902/198050987557.

The present work aimed to evaluate the seasonal increment in diameter of Eucalyptus grandis trees for 24 months and its relationship with the climatic variables and fertilization with nitrogen and with sewer mud. The trees were planted in the spacing of 3 x 2 m and fertilized with nitrogen (planting, 6, 12, 18 months) and sewer mud (planting and 8 months). 20 trees were selected by treatment according witch the distribution of basal area and installed dendrometer bands at a 1.3 meter. The results showed a clear effect of the climatic variables on the seasonal increment in diameter of trees, being observed a delay period (lag) of 28 days for the answer of the trees in relation to the climatic variables. Regading to the fertilization effect, it was observed that the increment of trunk diameter was higher in the eucalypt trees with organic in relation to mineral fertilization with nitrogen.

Keywords : dendrometer; eucalypt; fertilization; seasonal climatic.
