Title: Releasing young hardwood crop trees-use of a chain saw costs less than herbicides

Author: Miller, Gary W.; Miller, Gary W.

Date: 1984

Source: Res. Pap. NE-550. Broomall, PA: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Northeastern Forest Experiment Station. 5 p.

Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: A crown-touching release of 12-year-old black cherry and yellow-poplar crop trees on a good site required removing an average of 14 trees for every crop tree. An average of 80 crop trees per acre was left free-to-grow with an average growing space of 4.7 feet on all sides of the crown. Basal spraying cost $0.80 per crop tree, stem injecting cost $0.61 per crop tree, and chain saw felling cost $0.42 per crop tree. Recommendations on release methods and suggestions for cost savings are provided.

Keywords: thinning, chemical release, costs, Appalachian hardwoods
