Title: Stand structure and stocking control in Appalachian mixed hardwoods

Author: Trimble, George R., Jr. Jr.; Smith, H. Clay;

Date: 1976

Source: Res. Pap. NE-340. Upper Darby, PA: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Northeastern Forest Experiment Station. 10p.

Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: Uneven-aged management using a "q" technique for structure control is discussed for Appalachian mixed hardwoods. The success in attaining stand structure goals with periodic selection cuts was evaluated. Where these goals had not been reached, the authors speculated, on the basis of current stand conditions, whether they would be reached, and if so, when. For successful control of stand structure, reasonable guidelines must be used for choosing maximum size trees, residual basal area, and a "q" that is applicable to the tree species and stand conditions. Under this system of management, the future stands will contain mainly tolerant species that produce lower volumes per acre than those presently composing the overstory.
