Title: Comparative timber-yields

Author: Haig, I. T.;

Date: 1932

Source: Journal of Forestry. 30(5): 575-578.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: During the last decade the U. S. Forest Service and several of the forest schools have completed rather comprehensive studies of the growth and yield of a number of commercially important native conifers. As the majority of these studies show the volumes obtainable in fully-stocked stands to very similar standards of utilization, they furnish an excellent opportunity to compare the relative rates of growth on a number of important tree species. This is always an interesting subject to many foresters, as indicated by the Woodward-Forbes controversy of some months ago, and consequently the writer has felt it worth while to bring some of the newer data together for purposes of comparison.

Keywords: timber yields, growth, native conifers
