Drought Injury in Hemlock-Hardwood Stands in Connecticut
Abstract:A deficiency in precipitation during the last few years has caused considerable damage to the forests of southern New England. Around New Haven, Connecticut, hemlock appears to be the species which has suffered most. Drought observations on the forest property of the New Haven Water Company, which are being handled in accordance with the best water conservation and forestry principles, show that these practices are not at divergence. On the contrary, as far as drought injury to hemlock is concerned, thinned stands have been considerably less affected than untreated ones.
