DescriptionYellow-poplar stump sprouts are capable of very rapid growth and often dominate stands on good sites following harvest cutting. Thinning to one stem per stump at 6 years of age did not affect either height or diameter growth over the succeeding 18 years. The untreated clumps thinned themselves to an average of two stems per clump during the same time period. Thinning to one stem had no apparent effect on butt rot potential from the parent stump, but did reduce the potential for rot from dying ancillary
