Natural Influences on Trees: Species Associated with Environmental Factors (Elevation) or Natural Disturbances (Ice Storms)

# 21 Bartlett Cruise Plots
  • Objective:
    1) To observe how changes in species composition over time relate to environmental factors.
    2) To determine the effects of soils and elevation on species change with particular emphasis on trends in shade-tolerant species.
  • Objective:
    To develop stocking and stand tables and growth and yield estimates per silvicultural program.
  • Objective:
    To determine the rate of recovery of the residual stand following a heavy glaze salvage thinning and the effects of future wind or glaze storms on this reserved growing stock.
  • Objective:
    1) To compare the establishment and growth of 10 species of forest plants under varying levels of light exposure and soil moisture.
    2) To isolate the effects of light exposure, soil moisture, temperature and soil chemical content so that the contribution of each can be determined.
  • Objective:
    To identify the soil, stand, and environmental variables that affect 1) the capacity of Allegheny hardwood stands to produce wood, 2) the quantity of advanced regeneration in normally stocked stands, and 3) the quantity of ferns and grasses present in uncut stands.
