Abstract:Wherever forests are found destruction from wind can be expected and measures should be taken against it. The observations recorded here, which were made in numerous stands in Massachusetts and Connecticut after the 1938 hurricane, should aid in guiding silvicultural operations to lessen future damage from wind in New England.
