60 years of stand development in a southern appalachian usa cove hardwood stand



60 years of stand development in a southern appalachian usa cove hardwood stand



Forest Ecology & Management 5(3): 229-242



For the southern Appalachian Mountains USA, the development of a stand of cove hardwoods dominated by yellow-poplar (Liriodendron tulipifera L.) is described beginning with its inception after clearcutting in 1913, followed by a severe fire in 1916, and a cleaning in 1923. No subsequent treatments were imposed; natural mortality was the only factor affecting stand development since 1923. Stand density, basal area and average stem diameter by individual species are shown for 6 stand ages. diameter distribution of the 247 largest trees per hectare is also shown for 6 stand ages. In 60 yr, the cleaned stand produced 701 m3/ha of timber compared with 558 m3/ha for the uncleaned stand. Total basal area was greater by 8.58 m2/ha in the cleaned stand.
