    Description

    Describes the distribution of sawtimber trees by diameter at breast height (d.b.h.) and grade for eight hardwood species in upland oak stands of Pennsylvania. The proportion of trees by d.b.h. and grade revealed differences between species. The quality of northern red oak, white oak, and yellow-poplar appeared inherently better than that of red maple, chestnut oak, and a group of other hardwoods. Grade predictions by size and species allow more precise timber appraisals and enable managers to evaluate alternative management strategies more accurately.
