DescriptionOne suggested approach to converting even-aged northern hardwoods to an uneven-aged condition is the use of small-patch harvests to initiate new regeneration of desired species. Past experience indicates that such harvests may be less successful in second-growth, even-aged stands than in olderstands due to the abundance of sprouts and noncommercial species. Remeasurement of 47-yr-old patch harvests, applied to a 70-yr-old even aged stand, growing on a beech-red maple site in New Hampshire showed that paper and yellow birch dominated the regeneration composition of patch centers.
