Title: Diameter Growth in Even- and Uneven-Aged Northern Hardwoods in New Hampshire Under Partial Cutting
Author: Leak, William B.
Source: Northern Journal of Applied Forestry. 21(3): 160-163.
Description: One important concern in the conversion of even-aged stands to an uneven aged condition through individual-tree or small-group cutting is the growth response throughout the diameter-class distribution, especially of the understoty trees Increment-core sampling of an older, uneven-aged northern hardwood stand in New Hampshire under management for about 50 years established the baseline diameter-growth responses of the sapling, pole, and sawtimber strata. Growth responses of the poletimber and sawtimber in a 70-year-old even-aged stand were comparable to the uneven aged stand after an initial partial cutting treatment; growth of the understoty began approaching comparable rates after the second entry about 25 years after the first cut.
Keywords: Northern hardwoods, diameter growth, uneven-aged management
