Title: Appalachian hardwood stump sprouts are potential sawlog crop trees

Author: Lamson, Neil I.;

Date: 1976

Source: Research Note NE-229. Upper Darby, PA: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Northeastern Forest Experiment Station. 4p.

Publication Series: Research Note (RN)

Description: A survey of 8- and 12-year-old hardwood stump sprouts was made in north-central West Virginia. Species surveyed were yellow-poplar, black cherry, red oak, red maple, and basswood. Of the stumps cut 12 years ago, 66 percent produced at least one dominant or codominant sprout that originated at groundline and was free from forks in the lower 25 feet of the bole. The abundance and quality of these stump sprouts indicated that many of them can be considered as potential sawlog crop trees.
