Description

In 1967 Scott Paper Company merged with the S. D. Warren Company and S. D. Warren became a division of Scott. In 1969 the S. D. Warren timberlands in the Bingham, Maine area were transferred from the Warren Division to the Northeast Operations of Scott. Included in this transfer were approximately 700 acres of tree plantations which had been established in the 1920's and early 1930's. A wide variety of both native and exotic species were planted. These included Douglas-fir, Norway spruce, European larch, Austrian pine, red and white spruce, and red and white pine. As case histories to illustrate the practice of even-aged intensive silviculture, I have selected one plantation consisting of native red pine and white spruce in alternating rows, and one plantation of exotic Norway spruce as a pure stand.
