Influence of Habitat on Silvicultural Prescriptions in New England
Abstract:Silvicultural prescriptions in New England can be improved if land is classified by habitats within areas of a given rock type and climate. Habitat definition primarily in terms of glacial soil material provides insight into successional trends, species productivity, and managerial problems. On the basis of these factors, species and silvicultural treatments can be chosen logically for stands on granitic drift in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.
