DescriptionIn Pennsylvania and New York there are 2,350,000 acres of plantable land that could be utilized for growing timber for future needs. Much of this plantable land lies on the Allegheny Plateau - a region that is eminently suited to growing black cherry (Prunus serotina Ehrh.). On the Allegheny National Forest alone, 26,000 acres are classed as plantable. Besides this, the even-aged management program recently adopted on the Forest calls for clearcutting about 3,000 acres each year. Although these cut areas are expected to regenerate naturally for the most part, some of the acreage very likely will require artificial restocking.
