Abstract:

Enrichment of regeneration on contemporary hardwood clearcuts was achieved by transplanting large (2-3 m) white ash saplings. One- and 7-year-old clearcuts at Acadia Forest Experiment Station, N.B., were treated by spot scarification with a bulldozer blade, planting the ash saplings, and protecting them from deer with plastic netting. After 4 years, the ash was competitive with the red maple stump sprout regeneration on the older clearcut, and dominated the regeneration on the current clearcut. Seed source (family) height and diameter differences of up to 60 cm and 9 mm, respectively, persisted in 1986. North. J. Appl. For. 5:200-203, Sept. 1988.
