Release of Young Yellow-Poplar and Black Cherry--10-Year Results
Abstract:Yellow-poplar (Liriodendron tulipfera L.) and black cherry (Prunus serotina Ehrh.) seedling-origin crop trees were released seven years after clearcutting. Ten years after the release, height and diameter growth, clear bole length, survival, crown class, and potential as a crop tree, were evaluated for released and unreleased trees. Based on this evaluation, the selection and releasing of young crop trees to a dominant crown-class position using the methods described here, is not recommended at this time. Because grapevines caused considerable tree damage, early treatment of grapevines is recommended.
