A Study of Natural Tree Reproduction in the Beech-Birch-Maple-Hemlock Type
Abstract:One of the most important silvicultural problems in the hardwood forests of the East, is to determine effective methods of building up an understory of advance growth prior to logging of even-aged stands. Without such an understory, future stands of desirable seedling reproduction will be the exception rather than the rule. A six-year record of the behavior of regeneration in a 60-year-old stand points the way to methods of timber stand improvement applicable to the beech-birch-maple-hemlock type of Pennsylvania.
