Value of Small-Crowned Ponderosa Pines in Reserve Stands in the Southwest
Abstract:In the past there has been a tendency on the part of foresters to consider trees with small or abnormal crowns as poor individuals to leave in stands after cutting. Some trees have abnormal crowns because of disease, insect attack, or breakage; others because of suppression. A study of trees in the latter group, in northern Arizona, evaluates them in the light of their growth potentialities.
