Plantation Survival as Related to Soil Type, Aspect, and Growing Season
Abstract:Throughout old fields and other plantable land in the Great Appalachian Valley, soil depletion and general site quality show high variation. Because of this variation no relatively simple planting policy can be expected to utilize efficiently the timber growing potentialities of the land. The present paper is a report of preliminary but very practical results from one of a series of experiments designed to help in formulating a comprehensive planting policy for the Great Appalachian Valley and adjacent mountain regions. The results show that the responses of different species on the various site classifications are quite dissimilar.
