DescriptionDuring the summer of 1960, a series of clearcuttings in small patches were made in an old-growth stand of northern hardwoods on the Bartlett Experimental Forest, Bartlett, New Hampshire. This provided an opportunity to observe the variation in ages of a wide range of trees of different sites and species. The annual rings of over 100 stumps were counted in this stand of typical all-aged, old-growth birch, beech, and maple - which has been untouched by loggers since some light cutting took place late in the 19th century.
