Artificial factors for stimulation of flowering

Since flowering is mainly concerned with carbohydrates (C-H-O), therefore, treatments which prevent the movement of carbohydrates from the top also produces early flowering:
These treatments are:

  1. Root pruning: (injury to roots)
  2. Girdling: (removing of bark in a circular section)
  3. Strangulation (to restrict the flow of something) by wire or metal band.
  4. Inverting of a ring of bark:
  5. Tying a knot in a young tree/ branch
  6. Planting at an angle of 45 degrees. (less food transportation)
  7. Grafting on dwarf root stack
  8. Training the branches to horizontal position
  9. Fertilization, esp. phosphorus.
  • Sickly trees sometimes produce an abundant crop of small fruit as a last effort before dying.
  • Similarly, heavily tapped pines also produce abundant flowers.
  • Diseased trees or trees in adverse conditions will produce more flowers to establish their regeneration
  • Dominant trees produce more flowers as they receive more light which means more food while a suppress tree does not produce more flowers.

A single tree produces more flowers because max exposure to sunlight results in more photosynthesis hence more food accumulation.
