    Description

    How do you deal with stump sprouts in second-growth hardwood stands? Although thinning them takes special effort to avoid causing decay, stump sprouts are the only way to regenerate certain species such as basswood. Generally, you should thin them early and preferably when potential crop stems are 3 inches d.b.h. or less. But if you delay thinning until they are pole-size, leave those with vigorous co-dominant crowns, and those joined to the stump at the lowest point.
