Top Rot in Glaze-Damaged Black Cherry and Sugar Maple on the Allegheny Plateau
Abstract:Black cherry and sugar maple damaged in a glaze storm in 1936 were examined 40 and 48 months respectively after the storm to determine the extent of visible decay. It is believed that the common wound parasites which caused most of the top rot in cherry will eventually die and the wounds heal. Black cherry 3 inches in diameter or less at the break is considered to be a good risk for saw timber production, provided the breaks are confined to the branches and the upper part of the main stem and are accompanied by vigorous crown regeneration.
