Abstract:A 40-year-old clearcutting, originally made as an example of destructive logging, now supports one of the best mixed hardwood stands on the Bent Creek Experimental Forest. Such desirable intolerants as yellow-poplar provide potential for timber; some high- and low-quality oaks provide timber and wildlife values; and the entire young stand has a pleasing appearance.
