Description: A study of yellow-poplar seedlings showed that early survival and growth were best among stems that originated in May and early June. Few, if any, seedlings that emerged after 1 July were in favorable competitive condition 3 years later. This indicates that clearcuttings made for maximum natural regeneration of yellow-poplar should be carried out in fall and winter to permit early germination in the spring.
