A Yield Table for Northern Hardwoods in the Lake States
The prediction of volume growth in timber stands by means of a yield table offers certain unquestioned advantages over other growth-prediction methods, especially in its straightforward approach and ease of application. The normal-yield table, however--based upon stand age, and defining site in terms of height of dominant trees--has not been applied successfully to all-aged stands like those of the northern-hardwoods cover type, chiefly because of the variation in age among individual trees in the stand. A yield table for average well stocked stands of northern hardwoods in the Lake States, based on the average age and the average diameter of the main stand has been prepared by the author.
