Aspen as a Forest Crop in the Lake States
Abstract:Management of aspen in the Lake States has received little attention in the past. Recently a rapidly expanding market for forest products and the heavy drain on other species have focused attention on it. The possibilities of aspen as a forest crop are now being viewed rather optimistically by forest managers. This paper gives information on the possibilities as well as the difficulties of managing aspen.
