This paper provides an insight into the ability of bifurcations in hazel trees to remodel themselves after bracing, drilling and splitting. The study uses evidence from field observations and testing the strength of these bifurcations using a univers... Read More

The level of occlusion of included bark affects the strength of bifurcations in hazel (Corylus avellana L.) (2015)
Journal Article
Slater, D., & Ennos, A. R. (2015). The level of occlusion of included bark affects the strength of bifurcations in hazel (Corylus avellana L.). Arboriculture & urban forestry, 41(4), 194-207

Bark-included junctions in trees are considered a defect as the bark weakens the union between the branches. To more accurately assess this weakening effect, 241 bifurcations from young specimens of hazel (Corylus avellana L.), of which 106 had bark... Read More
