Factors Influencing Choice of Species in Artificial Reforestation
Abstract:Although this article refers specifically to New York conditions, it has much wider application. The author's theme concerns the reforestation of abandoned lands, and the need for classifying these lands as to their quality and accessibility and so adjusting the method of reforestation and the species used to fit the conditions rather than handling them all alike for simplicity's sake. On sites of poor growing conditions, uneconomically located, one should give preference to native species, cheaply established. On better growing sites having also better accessibility, a higher expenditure on better species and more intensive silvicultural methods are justified. The author offers a classification and evaluates certain species and planting methods.
