DescriptionQuartz grain size and mylonitization, geologic variables determined fromrocks on sites, were associated with total height of yellow-poplar (Liriodendron tulipifera L.) standsand may be of value as independent variables in modeling tree growth from site characteristics. A predictive model containing quartz grain site and stand age accounted for about 54% of the variationin total height of yellow-poplar stands in the Bald Mountains of western North Carolina. These and other geologic variables mayalsobe of value in classifying forest sites for species composition and productivity.
