Argonne Cutting Methods NH-25 Data Base
Entry ID: USDA0134


Summary
Abstract: To determine silviculture response to various even- and
uneven-aged cutting treatments in northern hardwood forests.
Also, to measure economic consequences of these treatments.
Data include individual tree records for several thousand trees,
including growth and yield and tree quality response to cutting
methods on three 40 acre plots at the Argonne Experimental
Forest, Nicolet National Forest, Wisconsin.
