Wind damage in the predominantly mixed oak forest in the Ridge and Valley Province of Pennsylvania was surveyed in the proximity of 15 recent clearcuts. Of the 282 damaged trees surveyed, 81 percent were windthrown and 19 percent had broken boles. Damage primarily occurred along long, west-facing forest edges adjacent to the clearcuts. Damage was also high where large numbers of pine existed in the residual stand and in areas with poorly drained soil. From an economic viewpoint, however, wind damage does not seem to be serious in this province.
