Black spruce (Picea mariana), one of the most important conifers in northeastern Minnesota, is distributed widely throughout the northeastern United States and much of Canada. It is characteristically a very tolerant and slow-growing species which occupies poorly drained or swampy sites. Since it is a valuable and important species, officers of the Superior National Forest in northeastern Minnesota have believed for several years that a black spruce yield table would be of help in the preparation of management plans. A yield table and a stand table for black spruce, therefore, have been prepared.
