Glaze Damage in a Young Yellow Birch Stand in Southern Quebec, Canada
Abstract:The relationships between three hardwood species, social position of trees, precommercial thinning treatment and ice storm damage were studied in a young hardwood stand in southern Quebec. The association between these variables was determined using log-linear modeling. Severity of the glaze damage was much higher for yellow birch than for sugar maple and white ash. As for the thinning treatment, yellow birch had the highest damage when heavy thinning from below was used. North. J. Appl. For. 18(1):14–18
