Title: Some effects of forest preservation

Author: Leak, William B.

Date: 1974

Source: Research Note NE-186. Upper Darby, PA: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Northeastern Forest Experiment Station. 4p.

Publication Series: Research Note (RN)

Description: Long-term preservation (no cutting) of a deciduous forest stand in New Hampshire is leading toward stable populations of beech, sugar maple, striped maple, mountain maple, and hobblebush, coupled with a decline or complete disappearance of other woody species. The humus has stabilized at a depth no greater than that of cut stands. Nitrate discharge in the streams is higher than what is normally found in uncut stands, possibly because of stability in standing crop and humus.
