Insurance Silviculture in the Black Cherry-Maple Type
Abstract:On the Allegheny Plateau in Pennsylvania, large areas of the black cherry-maple type are nearing an age when they should be regenerated. Largely because of browsing by white-tailed deer, clearcutting in these even-aged, second-growth stands often fails to secure regeneration. An industrial landowner leaves 20 to 40 pole-sized trees per acre, usually sugar maple (Acer saccharum Marsh.) and red maple (A. rubrum L.). They are a hedge against failure of regeneration and will provide a high rate of financial return while a new stand develops.
