Decay Following Glaze Storm Damage in Woodlands of Central New York
Northern hardwood stands in Otsego and Herkimer Counties, New York, were severely damaged by an ice storm in December, 1942. Early in 1945 saprot had developed at the bases of injured but living sngar maple and beech trees. The initial injury appears to be due to sunscald cansed by sudden opening of the stands. The silvicultural significance of the saprot fungi fonnd attacking injnred trees is indicated. Silvicultural measures for handling these stands are given.
