A pulsed electrical current was used to determine the resistance of cambial-zone tissues in pole-sized paper birch trees 3 years after thinning and fertilization treatments. Resistances in nonreleased (control) trees were significantly greater than those in released trees which had, in turn, resistances significantly greater than released-fertilized trees. Forest Sci. 22:471-472.
