EVALUATION OF RATE OF BARK REGENERATION IN TERMINALIA CUNEATA ROTH.Digambar Mokat, Harshita Maku, Ramchandra Patil and Satish Narkhede
Results of non-destructive bark harvesting experiments conducted to evaluate rate of bark recovery in Terminalia cuneata revealed that the mean regrowth in bark one month after bark harvesting was 1.98 cm2. The rate of bark recovery between two adjacent months varied between 1.67 to 9.43 cm2/month. The maximum rate of recovery (9.43 cm2) was noticed in the month of September i.e. six months after bark harvesting. Data recorded on percentage of regeneration in bark indicated cent per cent regeneration ten months after bark harvesting. The bark regeneration was observed in all 20 individuals of T. cuneata. The regression equation for regrowth in March at zero intercept was worked out to Y=4.9327 X and R2=0.9093. This equation clearly indicated that regrowth of bark in each month of monitoring was 4.93cm2 and 90.93 per cent increase in bark regrowth was depended on time of bark harvested.
