Snow Damage in Young Northern Hardwoods and Rapid Recovery
Abstract:Snow damage that occurred during 1958 in a 7-year-old stand of paper and yellow birch in New Hampshire was not as disastrous as it originally appeared. Data on the development of the stand since damage occurred--including stand quality, stocking species composition, and sample tree growth--indicates young northern hardwood stands have the capacity to recover rapidly from snow damage and in some cases may benefit from it.
