Hardwoods

Introduction

Hardwood trees are planted primarily in the Eastern United States for timber production, wildlife habitat, riparian buffers, native woodland restoration, windbreaks, watershed protection, erosion control, and conservation.

This section describes the steps for the successful establishment and development of hardwood trees.

Many thanks to Paula Pijut and Douglas Jacobs of the Hardwood Tree Improvement and Regeneration Center for providing much of the information in this section.
