Effects of Periodic Clipping On Yield Of Some Common Browse SpeciesLay, D. W. (Society for Range Management, 1965-07-01)Of six browse species clipped annually for 10 years, some maintained production under 50 percent clipping better than others with 25 percent clipping. Optimum appeared to be closer to 25 percent. Under destructive 100 percent monthly clipping of 16 species, the smilaxes, gallberry, and American cyrilla were most tenacious. All plants were in pine forest understory.
