Title: Introducing white pine into poor-site hardwood stands in West Virginia

Author: Yawney, Harry W.;

Date: 1961

Source: Station Paper NE-154. Upper Darby, PA: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Northeastern Forest Experiment Station. 1-10

Publication Series: Science Perspectives (SP)

Description: Poor hardwood land presents a problem that is only too well known: what to do with areas in hardwood country that support only stunted, slow-growing trees? This is a question that vexes foresters and landowners in many parts of West Virginia and neighboring mountainous areas of Maryland and Virginia. On these poor sites, it is doubtful whether the hardwoods can pay the taxes. Such stands usually are dominated by short-boled chestnut and scarlet oaks; and black gum, sourwood, white oak, and sassafras are the principal associates.
