Description: Intensive forest management depends heavily upon our ability to measure, control, and predict the growth, yield, or general development of timber stands, regardless of whether the management goal is for timber, aesthetics, recreation, water, or wildlife. A large amount of mensurational data about birch stands has been developed in recent years or synthesized from available information (Marquis et al. 1969, Leak et al. 1969). This information, which is summarized in this paper, covers site estimation, stocking, short-term growth, and yield. The information about paper birch applies to even-aged stands-in some cases to essentially pure stands that contain 50 percent or more paper birch. The data on yellow birch cover both even-aged and uneven-aged mixed northern hardwood stands with at least 5 percent yellow birch.
