DescriptionMaximum tree size and species composition are related to elevation on Mount Washington (disturbed by logging) and Mount Whiteface (uncut) in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Species migrational trends and differences between the two mountains in species elevational limits indicate that both hardwoods and softwoods will move to higher elevations in areas where cutting and heavy disturbance are eliminated.
