    Description

    Based on records taken during a harvest operation in 1899 on more than 400 trees in a northern hardwood stand in upper New York State, age and structural characteristics, including growth patterns, were developed and summarized. Age and size characteristics indicate that this was an exemplary old-growth stand similar in character to current old-growth examples in the northeastern United States. The purpose of this paper is to add to the available information on old-growth stand characteristics in the Northeast.
