Growth of Large Yellow Birch Saplings following Crop Tree Thinning
When individual yellow birch (Betula alleghaniensis Britton) saplings 2 to 6 inches in dbh were thinned, five-year basal area increases of up to 100 percent were observed in even-aged stands. Responses were less in two-aged stands where saplings were in openings but subordinate to surrounding dominants.
