The plots which comprise this experiment in the cutting of spruce and fir were established in 1930 at Newcomb, New York, on land belonging to Finch, Pruyn and Company, Inc., of Glens Falls, New York. 5 Since then cutting and girdling have been completed with results as set forth in the following article. This large scale silvicultural experiment has already awakened much interest among foresters and timberland owners in the Northeast, and as periodic remeasurements become available, it should prove an increasingly valuable demonstration area.
