DescriptionNorthern hardwood forests provide the industries of New England with their most valuable woods: yellow birch and sugar maple for veneer, paper birch for turning stock, and other hardwood species for a variety of specialty products. As a result of recent developments in hardwood pulping, these northern hardwood forests now represent a tremendous reservoir of raw material to the pulp and paper industry. To ensure a continued and balanced supply of timber for these wood-using industries, foresters must be well equipped with information on the growth and development of northern hardwoods.
