practically non-existent. When red oak ( Quercus rubra ) leaf water potential was between –1.5 and –2.0 MPa, CO 2 assimilation reduction relative to control trees was 60% ( Weber and Gates, 1990 ). Subjecting rubber trees ( Hevea brasiliensis ) seedlings to

Quercus rubra formed on the basal zone of the trunk have a greater capacity for in vitro establishment than do explants from crown branches ( Vieitez et al., 1993 ). Alternatively, micropropagation of adult plants could be facilitated using rejuvenation

fresh weight, survival dropped to 40% and plant dieback increased to 90% ( Englert et al., 1993 ). In contrast, red oak ( Quercus rubra L.) lost water at a lower rate and at 18% moisture loss resulted in 95% survival and less than 40% dieback ( Englert

minimal. Harris et al. (2001) suggested that root pruning of Quercus rubra L. (red oak), which presumably results in a more branched or fibrous root system, may facilitate transplanting and container production. Root pruning can affect the number of
