Management of Aspen on 10- to 20-Year Rotations
Aspen and aspen hybrids are adapted to a wide variety of upland soils, sucker vigorously, and quickly occupy sites following harvesting. Rapid early growth, satisfactory wood quality, and response to site quality improvement make the aspen sucker stands well suited to intensive management on short rotations. The authors emphasize the need for better utilization and propose the management of selected native stands and improved aspen on short rotations using a mechanized harvesting system which includes reducing the trees to chips in the field.
