    Description

    Summarizes the extensive literature for northern forest species covering site index curves, site index species comparisons, growth intercepts, soil-site studies, plant indicators, physiographic site classifications, and soil survey studies. The advantages and disadvantages of each are discussed, and suggestions are made for future research using each of these methods. Suggests a complementary framework that coordinates site quality, yield, and forest land classification. Discusses how this complementary framework can help in practicing more intensive timber management.
