Description: In 1959 a study of crop-tree release and species cleaning was established in a 25-year-old northern hardwood stand growing on an above-average hardwood site that resulted from a silvicultural clearcut in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. The stand was followed for 5 years and based on the results, treatment effects were projected to a stand age of 45 years. These projections were subjected to a financial analysis. The treatment plots were tallied at stand ages 56 years (1990) and 69 years (2003). The financial analyses were repeated based on these more recent data and the original results and conclusions were re-examined.
Keywords: precommercial treatments, hardwood silviculture, economic evaluation, paper birch, American beech, sugar maple, yellow birch
