Abstract

An experiment to examine survival and early growth of Eucalyptus camaldulensis on a saline site was carried out in north Queensland, Australia. Plots of five trees were subjected to four establishment treatments: tree shelter, plastic mulch, organic mulch and control. In each plot, survival and tree height were measured at 3, 6 and 9 months after tree planting. Soil salinity and water content were measured in each plot at 2 months and 4 months after planting, respectively. Trees with organic mulch and tree-shelter treatments had a greater survival than trees with plastic-mulch and control treatments, particularly when salinity was higher. Both survival and early growth of E. camaldulensis was negatively correlated to salinity. © 1994.
