Shelterwood Removal and Mowing Study - Kane Experimental Forest, USDA/FS
Entry ID: USDA_FS53


Summary
Abstract: To serve as a roadside demonstration of shelterwood and the cutting
back of advance growth.

"Shelterwood Removal and Mowing Study (Kane Experimental Forest)" is a
long-term dataset that serves as a roadside demonstration of
shelterwood and the cutting back of advance growth. The dataset helps
to determine (1) the amount of damage to the understory caused by the
removal of a hold-over stand, (2) the effect of complete exposure on
the survival of various species in the understory, and (3) the effect
of cutting back the understory in order to produce a seeding sprout
stand and to influence stand composition.
