A Study of Organic Factors Concerned in the Decadence of Birch on Cut-Over Lands in Northern New England
Abstract:Investigations of decadence of birch in cut-over lands of northern New England show that injuries induce attacks of the bronze birch borer and the root rot fungus. Decadence appears to be due to abnormal environmental conditions caused by logging operations and drastic opening of the canopy.
