A comparative growth study of Avicennia officinalis, A. alba and A. marina along
the eastern shorelines of Bangladesh showed an average annual diameter increments of
0.99, 0.90 and 0.97 cm respectively for plantations varying 11 and 16 years age. Average
annual height increments of these species were 0.31, 0.37 and 0.31 m respectively.
Annual volume production per tree was 0.025, 0.025 and 0.024 m3 respectively. All the
individuals of Avicennia species had a promising growth and the plantation was
successful along the eastern coast of the country. On the contrary much human
interference was observed on the established plantations. The growth of Avicennia
officinalis, A. alba and A. marina showed that plantation areas and newly accreted lands
may be suitable for planting with Avicennia species.
