Damage to Northern Hardwood Reproduction During Removal of Shelterwood Overstory

The full text article is temporarily unavailable.

We apologise for the inconvenience. Please try again later.

Northern hardwood reproduction was counted before, immediately after, and three years after removal of a shelterwood overstory. Although logging destroyed about 35 percent of the advance reproduction, more than 45,000 stems/acre remained and all quadrats were stocked. After three years the number of stems taller than 3.6. ft had more than doubled arid 93 percent of the quadrats were stocked. A stocking goal for advanced reproduction of 5,000 stems/acre, 2 to 4 ft tall, is suggested.
