Decay Hazard Resulting from Ice Damage to Northern Hardwoods
Abstract:Few factual data are available concerning the susceptibility of ice-damaged trees to decay. The present study indicates that moderate top injury or trunk wounds offer a low decay hazard in 40-year-old or younger black cherry and sugar maple but a high decay hazard in red maple and beech. Trnnk wounds of any kind in red maple, the birches and beech 20 years of age or older contribute a high decay hazard.
