Crop Tree Field Guide: Selecting and managing crop trees in the central Appalachians

This field guide was developed as an aid for foresters and landowners to facilitate selection of crop trees in the application of Crop Tree Management in the central Appalachian region of the United States. Managers familiar with the publication, Crop Tree Management In Eastern Hardwoods, will find this publication to be a source of additional  guidance and information useful in selecting crop trees to accomplish desired landowner goals such as timber production, improved wildlife habitat, and enhanced aesthetic benefits. Based on research at the Fernow Experimental Forest, observations and growth data from several  crop tree demonstration areas, and published sources of information, this guide provides greater detail for 16 individual species commonly selected as crop trees.
