Description: Seven years after a clearcut-herbicide treatment in a West Virginia Appalachian hardwood stand, root-stem age was determined for sugar maple, black cherry, and white ash. Sugar maple stems originated from advanced reproduction, black cherry originated primarily from seedlings that germinated during or after treatment, and white ash stems were a mixture of seedlings, advanced reproduction, and stump sprouts.
Keywords: regeneration, stem origin, stem age, clearcut-herbicide
