Young Sweetgum Responds to Early Merchantable Thinning
Abstract:Thinnings to 45 and 66 square feet of merchantable basal area were imposed on a 13-year-old natural sweetgum (Liquidambar styraciflua L.) stand having 90 square feet of merchantable basal area. Twelve years later, volume growth per surviving residual tree is significantly better in both thinning treatments than in the control.
