DescriptionEarly results of planting paper birch in old fields in Maine have not been very encouraging. Observations of seven plantations in a study established in 1959 by the Northeastern Forest Experiment Station showed low survival and slow growth over the first five growing seasons. Removing the sod in advance of planting gave better results than planting directly in the sod.
