Abstract:

Tree growth, litter fall and leaf litter decomposition, nutrient return thought leaf litter and litter decomposition were 7 year old Eucalyptus tereticornis plantation. The Tree growth under agri-silvicultural system at the beginning of experiment the observations recorded with respect to certain growth parameters of Eucalyptus tereticornis have been shown Table 1 in 2014–2015. The maximum tree height (21.80 m) found in tree no 5; Dbh (22.63 cm) and canopy width (5.82 m) were recorded in the same tree number 3. Whereas the maximum canopy length (6.32 m) was found in the tree number 3. In the next year 2015–2016 the observations recorded with respect to certain growth parameters at the end of experiment of Eucalyptus tereticornis have been shown in Table 2 and the maximum tree height (22.78 m) found in tree no 5; Dbh (24.48 cm) and canopy width (6.17 m) were recorded in the same tree number 3. Whereas the maximum canopy length (7.61 m) was found in the tree number 3. The maximum litter from litter trap was recorded in (59.94g) month of November during 2014–2015 and the minimum litter from litter traps was found in (6078 g) month of November during the year 2015–2016.
