AbstractThe stem-diameter age relationships of salt cedar from 15 study sites in central Utah were investigated. Age prediction equations were generated and found significant (p<.001). Within restricted geographic areas the stem ages of salt cedar could be estimated with fair reliability, but with substantial geographic separation results were less accurate. The impact of salt cedar invasion over prolonged periods of time was also assessed. Results indicated that the longer the community has been occupied by salt cedar the more xeric the habitat becomes.
