Structural changes over time in forests of shade-toler- ant species are difficult to study because these stands are often broadly uneven-aged and not suitable for traditional chronosequence analysis.

In the Lake States, sugar maple is found at elevations up to m (1, ft)-most commonly on ridges between poorly drained areas and on soil with at least 1 to m (3 to 5 ft) to the water table. In northern New England and New York State it grows at elevations up to m (2, ft). see more details state, USA, and provides information for use in both even-aged and uneven-aged stands.

Reinvasion of Hardwoods Following Eradication in an Uneven-Aged Pine Stand M. D. Cain and D. A. Yaussy INTRODUCTION Throughout the South, forest managers encounter the problem of shade-tolerant understory species competing with pines for growing space, sunlight, moisture and nutrients. Hardwood competition inAuthor: Cain, D.A. Yaussy. Land managers, planners, and owners need new knowledge and new modeling tools to asses the effects of alternative land management practices and natural disturbances on a range of human and ecological benefits. This research will develop and apply tools that examine a range of forest management issues at stand and landscape scales and where appropriate, offer management options for specific. 1a.

I argued that the regional Acadian Forest (a transition spruce-fir/northern hardwood forest) during presettlement times actually had very long cycles of catastrophic disturbance and that it was mostly uneven aged, with old trees. I, therefore, argued for more uneven-aged management.

Uneven-aged management of northern hardwoods in New England. Upper Darby, Pa.: Forest Service, U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, Northeastern Forest Experiment Station, (OCoLC) Northern hardwoods and associated mixed-wood types occupy at least 20 million acres in New England and New York; similar types occur further west and south, and into adjacent Canada.

In eastern North America, as is the case in many parts of the world, forest stands have been impoverished in terms of their wood quality (stem grade, size and valuable species) through a long period of timber high-grading and diameter-limit cutting during the last century (Robitaille and Boivin, ).To replenish timber quality in these stands, forest managers have promoted the Cited by: Field Note Best Density and Structure for Uneven-Aged Northern Hardwood Management in New England Article in Northern Journal of Applied Forestry 20(1) March with 21 Reads.

Hardwood Silviculture: Even-aged and Uneven-aged Systems. Hardwood silviculture is extremely complex. More than 40 commercial hardwood species make up the southern hardwood forest.

These commercial species grow in association with one another and are mixed with an additional species. MARIKO YAMASAKI is Research Wildlife Biologist at the U.S.

While uneven-aged silviculture may appear preferable to even-aged silviculture in terms of stand susceptibility to windthrow (major wind damage), the scientific evidence is equivocal on this issue, because the two systems do not operate over the same time frame.

Since the conventional treatments had significantly lower residual basal areas, this result is consistent with previous research on growth responses to stocking density in northern hardwoods (Leak et al.
