Top Rot in Snow-Damaged Yellow Poplar and Basswood
Abstract:During early June 1939 yellow poplar (Liriodendron tulipifera), basswood (Tilia glabra) and other hardwood species damaged by snow in October 1935 were examined for top rot in connection with cordwood thinning studies on the Fernow Experimental Forest, of the Appalachian Forest Experiment Station, near Parsons, W. Va. The snow fall occurred while many of the leaves were still on the trees and consequently the weight of the snow caused considerable crown breakage in the stand. The stand consisted of second-growth yellow poplar and basswood, with a few other hardwood species of secondary importance. Most of the trees examined ranged in age from 20 to 40 years and were, for the most part, growing on good sites.
