    Description

    The occurrence of red spruce, hemlock, beech, and sugar maple stands was related to habitat classified by substratum (generally C horizon or parent material), drainage, aspect, and elevation. Softwoods were found on rocky, outwashed, compacted, and poorly drained substrata; hardwoods were common on open glacial tills. Species was related to climate and apparent resistance of the substratum to weathering.
