In the experiment here described, reproduction was studied on plots under four sets of conditions: clear-cut and burned, uncut and burned, clear cut and not burned, and uncut and not burned. The advantages of cutting and burning proved to be temporary, competition from other vegetation apparently being more potent than favorable seed bed conditions. The fact that the results of this experiment are negative is of especial interest in view of the importance of yellow poplar and the preconception we have had that yellow poplar required only a few easily supplied conditions to assure its plentiful reproduction.
