AbstractShaker-clamp stresses on fruit and nut trees during mechanical harvesting, which can result in bark injury and susceptibility to disease, were measured under a variety of conditions in these continuing studies. Some of the variables found to affect bark injuries include moisture in both soil and bark, varietal differences, and tree age.
