Title: Some preliminary estimates of energy utilization in even-aged northern hardwoods
Author: Leak, William B.
Source: Research Note NE-108. Upper Darby, PA: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Northeastern Forest Experiment Station. 7p.
Description: Estimates of energy utilization from various sources indicate that even-aged northern hardwood stands utilize less than 1/2 percent of net solar radiation for wood, leaf, and seed production, and only about 1/10 percent for production of merchantable wood. Forest managers should seek to understand and manipulate the remaining 99+ percent of solar energy, for improving the efficiency of merchantable wood production.
