Abstract: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.

- The Journal of Forestry is the most widely circulated scholarly forestry journal in the world. In print since 1902, the Journal has received several national awards for excellence. The mission of the Journal of Forestry is to advance the profession of forestry by keeping forest management professionals informed about significant developments and ideas in the many facets of forestry: economics, education and communication, entomology and pathology, fire, forest ecology, geospatial technologies, history, international forestry, measurements, policy, recreation, silviculture, social sciences, soils and hydrology, urban and community forestry, utilization and engineering, and wildlife management. The Journal is published bimonthly: January, March, May, July, September, and November.
