DescriptionIn the past 40 years, many poorly drained fields and pastures in southern New Jersey have been abandoned; and on some of them even-aged stands of sweetgum have developed. These stands seem to lend themselves well to management because (1) they are accessible, (2) sweetgum is an economically desirable species, and (3) the individual stems are well formed, with good lengths clear of branches.
