    Description

    World-wide demand for wood products is increasing, along with demand for recreational and watershed uses of forest lands. While these demands are increasing, large areas of prime hardwood and pine forest land$ are being cleared for agriculture, urban and industrial development,highways, and utility rights of way. Hardwood plantations, however, can provide great quantities of biomass. This paper reports quantitative 4-year data on coppice growth and development of three species, sweetgum (SG), sycamore (SY), and green ash (GA), following clearcutting of 7-year-old plantings. There were three spacings: 2x8, 3x8, and 4x8 feet.
