A survey of 2,507 plantations in Ohio showed that 76 per cent of them had volunteers, which averaged 541 per acre. The number tends to increase up to 25 years of age, after which there is a decrease. The species of volunteers vary greatly in abundance in different regions, with elm, cherry, hawthorn, white ash, and sugar maple taking the lead for the state as a whole.
