DescriptionChanges in the density and biomass of trees, shrubs, and herbs were measured periodically over 10 years following a progressive strip cutting and block clearcutting of northern hardwoods. At 10 years after clearcutting, yellow birch was the most numerous commercial or uncommercial tree on the block clearcut; sugar maple on the strip cut. Pin cherry dominated the biomass on the block clearcut and the first set of strips throughout the 10 years; yellow birch and sugar maple on the second and third sets of strips at 10 years.
