Title: Release Speeds Growth of Bottomland Hardwoods

Author: Johnson, J. W.;

Date: 1951

Source: Southern Lumberman 181(2262):41-42

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: This article reports early changes in growth rate brought about by partial cutting in two bottomland hardwood stands. Better information will be forthcoming as re-measurements are made over longer periods. Indications are, however, that the acceleration of growth caused by release is large enough to be a vital factor in planning future cuts.

Keywords: hardwoods
