      It is a remarkable river in this: that instead of widening toward its mouth, it grows narrower; grows narrower and deeper. From the junction of the Ohio to a point half way down to the sea, the width averages a mile in high water: thence to the sea the width steadily diminishes, until, at the 'Passes,' above the mouth, it is but little over half a mile. wood and cause a decay called dry rot. When free water is added to wood to attain % moisture content or higher, decay will occur. Yet, wood can be too wet for decay. If wood is soaked in water, there is not enough air for the fungi to develop. Brown-rot fungi. Brown-rot fungi decompose the car­.

    WOOD PRODUCTS VALUE: The wood of shagbark hickory is tough, heavy, hard, and resilient [23,54].It is well suited to uses which require a wood capable of resisting impact and stress [].The close-grained heartwood is reddish brown and the sapwood nearly white [29,57].Wood was formerly used to make wheels and spokes for wagons, carriages, carts, and early automobiles [].   YOUNG black men out in the streets at night, lines of police officers dressed for a riot, cars ablaze, stores looted, the morning-after platitudes about coming together: the recent scenes in.

    Lynching is premeditated murder committed by a group of people by extrajudicial action. Lynchings in the United States first became common in the Southern United States in the s, s, and s, at which time most of the victims were white men. Lynchings of black people rose in number after the American Civil War during Reconstruction; they declined in the s. This is a supplement to the main Wood Decay page.. Here are simply lists, with annotations, of some important decays with a focus on North America. They are in 3 categories: stem decays of living trees, root and butt rots, and primarily saprobic decays (i.e., decaying dead trees).

Heart rot which frequently develops in fire scars may in turn effect other processes, such as bark beetle activities in burned stands (Geiszler and others a,b). Canker fungi may also be associated with fire scars (Hinds and Krebill ).

The wood from hardwood trees tends to be harder because the trees grow at a slower rate, giving the wood its greater density.

Of the 40 million acres of productive hardwood sites in the South, about 12 million are in the alluvial valley of the Mississippi River. These bottom lands produce about 20 percent of the total hardwood lumber in the South.

Fire, although not spectacular and not occurring every year, nevertheless does much damage in these hardwood forests. In Lentz (9)2 reported that Successions of Organisms in Discoloration and Decay of Wood.

In the following different types of stands an attempt was made to determine the important heartwood-decaying fungi: (1) Unburned sprout stands; (2) seedling or seedling sprout stands that had been damaged by fire; and (3) southern Delta hardwood stands.
