DescriptionThis report is a case history of stand development 25 years after a 9.0-inch diameter-limit cutting in a primarily second growth 40- to 45-year-old Appalachian hardwood stand. Some old residual trees from the early 1900 logging era were scattered throughout the stand. In 1950, a 9.0-inch diameter-limit cutting removed 8,650 board feet per acre and reduced the basal area from 97 to 24 square feet per acre. Twenty-five years after this 1950 cutting, the total sawlog volume was 7,425 board feet per acre with a basal area of 98 square feet per acre. Oaks accounted for 42 percent of the sawlog-size trees and 45 percent of the sawlog stand volume.
