DescriptionIn 1998, personnel with the Northeastern Research Station and the Monongahela National Forest initiated a comprehensive survey of even-age stands that regenerated between 1964 and 1990. Preliminary results indicate that clearcutting was successful in regenerating these young stands with a variety of woody and herbaceous plant species. Early cleanings using crop-tree management techniques and control of wild grapevines (Vitis sp.) are recommended to enhance the development of desirable tree species that meet specific management objectives. Ecological classification appears to be useful in prioritizing silvicultural treatments at the stand level, thus facilitating control of vegetative conditions at larger scales for a variety of management objectives.
