Tree Growth and Vigor Class in Northern Hardwoods: Results from a Continuous Forest Inventory
Average annual diameter growth rates for sugar maple have been computed from permanent continuous forest inventory plots installed in a heavy partial cutting in Michigan northern hardwoods. Measurements represent three periods spanning a total of 32 years. Distinct differences in growth rate can be identified with individual tree vigor/risk classes, but there is no apparent correlation of tree growth with tree diameter in these small sawtimber stands.
