Title: Growth of northern hardwoods in New England: a 25-year update

Author: Leak, William B.; Gove, Jeffrey H.

Date: 2008

Source: Northern Journal of Applied Forestry. 25(2): 103-105.

Publication Series: Journal/Magazine Article (JRNL)

Description: Twenty-five-year results from a study of four stand density levels and three percentages of sawtimber in a beech-red maple-birch-hemlock stand in New Hampshire showed that moderate stand densities of 60- to 80-ft2/ac with 25- to 30-ft2 of sawtimber produced the best growth responses. Ingrowth was dominated by beech, red maple, and hemlock. Treatments with low initial numbers of poletimber stems had well-developed J-shaped or slightly sigmoid diameter distributions after 25 years. Results apply to the first entries into northern hardwood stands of moderate vigor and quality.

Keywords: northern hardwoods, stand density, stand structure, growth
