Catalog of Long Term Research Conducted by the Northeastern Research Station

Catalog #46

Kane R-Series Yield Plots
To determine natural (unmanaged) growth rates and yields.
1932, 1936
expected to continue
Kane Experimental Forest
15 1-square chain plots established 1932, and 6 1-square chain plots established 1936.
No human intervention. The insertion of a gas transmission line destroyed plot R8A. Drought years, heavy birch mortality, loss of growth and spotty mortality in other species: 1930 to 1936. Ice storm: 1930 and 1950.
Within each plot, each tree taller than 4.5' was numbered, plotted on a stand map, and measured diameter to the nearest 0.1". Original study complete yet measurements continue to be taken. Trees were renumbered in 1977.
Tree species, d.b.h. (to the nearest 0.1"), crown class, total height, tree condition: 1932, 1937, 1942, 1952, 1957, 1977, 1984, 1988.
Data were field checked and data-entry into computer was 100% cross checked with field sheets.
Raw data by plot reside on DG and tally sheets are kept with written instructions and detailed maps to each stand. Annually, the raw data are transformed using the REGEN1 program in DG Info. System. Summarized data by plot and by stand reside in a DG-based program that can output to ASCII text files.
