DescriptionYellow birch is among our more valued hardwood species. Yet only meager information about site requirements is available for this tree and for paper birch. Site studies for yellow birch and paper birch and for other northern hardwood species have been completed for the Green Mountains of Vermont by Curtis and Post (1962a, 1962b). A similar study for northern hardwoods recently was initiated for northern Michigan and northern Wisconsin. We will summarize the major results and observations from these two site studies.
