Characteristics and Growth of Natural Green Ash Stands
Abstract:Green ash occurs naturally in pure, even-aged stands on poorly drained, silty flats in southern bottom-lands. Total basal area carrying capacity on these sites is about 160 sq. ft. per acre. Volume growth, 39 to 65 cu. ft. per acre per year, is primarily related to stand age. Ash appears to be relatively free from insect and disease attacks, but rabbits and deer damage seedlings. Severe losses are caused by the water impoundments of beavers. The pioneer nature of green ash indicates that it is adapted for plantation management systems or natural regeneration on clearcut areas.
