Lowland Brush in Clearcut Spruce Swamps Develops from Residual Vegetation--Not from Invasion
Abstract:A vegetation survey in black spruce swamps and lowland brush areas in north-central Minnesota suggests that lowland brush usually develops from the vegetative reproduction of shrubs already present at the time of logging, and not by invasion from surrounding areas. To reproduce black spruce and avert succession to brush on swamps similar to those sampled, residual vegetation should be killed as soon as possible after clearcutting.
