DescriptionIn the upper Coastal Plain and northward in New Jersey, yellow-poplar is an important component of the hardwood forests because of its rapid growth, straight and clear bole, and desirable wood characteristics. But attempts to reproduce this species naturally after harvest cuttings have often been unsuccessful. Though poor seed crops and unfavorable seedbed conditions may at times restrict germination, observations indicate that mortality of seedlings after germination is of greater significance.
