Description: Studies of regeneration 2, 5, and 10 years after cutting mature and overmature sugar maple stands to several residual densities show that (1) sugar maple is still the predominant species under all stand densities (2) nearly all regeneration reaching larger size classes became established before cutting (3) heavier cuttings (30, 50, and 70 square feet) are more rapidly making up deficits in sapling and pole sized classes than the lightest cutting (90 square feet).
Keywords: Residual stand densities, sugar maple
