DescriptionClassification and evaluation of forest sites is an essential step in managing central hardwood forests. In Note 4.01, The Importance of Site Quality, the usefulness of land classification systems was discussed. The present Note describes one of those systems in more detail. It is an easy-to-use system developed for the Cumberland Plateau and Highland Rim-Pennyroyal physiographic provinces in Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia, Kentucky, and Virginia. Although the system applies only to a limited portion of the central hardwood forest, the concepts used to develop the system are probably applicable to the entire area. Potential users must first obtain copies of the publication listed at the end of this Note.
