The Growth of Timber in Indiana Farmwoods
Abstract:Sample plot studies in 16 counties in northern Indiana show that the actual volume increment under the growing stock and growth conditions found in the average farmwoods varies from about 100 to 350 board feet per acre per year. Red oak is the best grower, with elm second. Under forest management, which would exclude grazing, would favor the better-growing species, and would seek a better distribution of diameter classes, the annual growth in mixed hardwood stands should be 300 board feet or more per acre.
