Is Suppression a Possible Cause of Bird's-Eye in Sugar Maple?
Abstract:After a statistical analysis of the rate of growth and the presence of bird's-eye figure in maple, the author comes to the conclusion that bird's-eye figure is more prevalent in suppressed trees of virgin-growth stands which have grown slowly during the first century of their life, and that consequently much longer time would be required to grow trees containing bird's-eye figure than trees with plain wood.
