Ten-Year Results of Thinning and Clearcutting in a Muck Swamp Timber Type
Abstract:Thinnings and a clearcut treatment were imposed on a 60-year-old muck swamp stand. After 10 years, the uncut control produced more merchantable volume per acre than the thinned plots, and had essentially the same percent mortality of residual trees. On an individual-tree basis, crop trees grew faster as thinning intensities increased Clearcutting and cull control produced good regeneration development, averaging 89 percent desirable species Cypress has outgrown the gum component across all treatments.
