Description: Grapevines (Vitis spp.) are becoming a major problem to forest managers in the Appalachians, especially when clearcutting is done on highly productive hardwood sites. Where present, grapevines can reduce tree quality and growth, and eventually kill the tree. Silvical characteristics of grapevines are discussed as background for grapevine control. Forest management guidelines are given for controlling growth of grapevines.
Keywords: grapevines, control guidelines, silvical characteristics
