    Description

    Total above-ground production was evaluated in 28 natural alder thickets, aged 1 to 14 years. On a per acre basis; mean annual production varied from 3 to more than 20 tons of green wood per acre. Such yields warrant preliminary trials of short-rotation cultural systems with red alder.
