Abstract:

The present investigation was carried out to quantify the variation in growth characters of Acrocarpus fraxinifolius across the selected populations in the coffee growing regions of southern Karnataka. The growth parameters such as total tree height, clear bole height and girth at breast height were recorded and basal area and volume were estimated. Tree height varied significantly and the maximum tree height was recorded in Mudigere and Chikamagaluru (26.14 m) populations. The difference in GBH was found to be non-significant across the populations, which could be due to selection of trees in particular girth class. The clear bole height of trees varied across the populations from 9.19 m in Bhagamandala to 18.93 in Totadagadde. Basal area of A. fraxinifolius was relatively higher in Shuntikoppa (0.157 m2) and volume was maximum in Balehonnuru population (1.298 m3).
