Title: Northern white-cedar regeneration dynamics on the Penobscot Experimental Forest in Maine: 40-year results

Author: Larouche, Catherine; Kenefic, Laura S.; Ruel, Jean-Claude.;

Date: 2010

Source: Northern Journal of Applied Forestry. 27(1): 5-12.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description:

The objective of this study was to assess the long-term dynamics of northern white-cedar (Thuja occidentalis L.) seedling and sapling growth and mortality on the Penobscot Experimental Forest in Maine. Data collected between 1965 and 2005 in four twice-replicated partial cutting treatments were analyzed. White-cedar seedlings established in all treatments despite relatively high white tailed-deer (Odocoileus virginianus Zimmerman) population densities. However, although it appears that regeneration cohorts of associated softwoods increased in size over time, the white-cedar cohort did not.

Keywords: partial cutting, recruitment, browsing, growth, eastern white cedar
