Research results and ongoing research activities in oak plantings and related physiology and genetics studies are described in 30 abstracts.
Lake States pulpwood production climbed to a record 8.1 million cords. Central States pulpwood production dropped 1% from 1987's production of 403 thousand cords. Pulpwood production is shown by county and species group for Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Missouri, Illinois, and Indiana.
Discusses recent Wisconsin forest industry trends; production and receipts of pulpwood, saw logs, and veneer logs; and production of other timber products in 1988. Reports on logging residue, on wood and bark residue generated at primary wood-using mills, and on disposition of this mill residue.
Timber inventory report for twelve county area in southwest Missouri. Forest land comprises approximately half the land area of these counties. Timber removals are less than half of growth. Timber volume and growth continue to increase as large areas of regenerated stands achieve sawtimber size. Highlights and statistics are presented on area, volume, growth,...
Reports on the survival and growth of a 46-year-old tamarack plantation on an upland site.
This revised user`s guide will help fire managers interpret the output from FIREFAMILY, a computer program that uses historic weather data for fire planning. With the changes in the National Fire-Danger Rating System, all Forest Service units will need to rerun their historical weather data and use this publication to revise their fire plan. The guide describes...
Describes research designed to detect subtle regional tree growth trends related to sulfate (SO4) deposition in the Lake States. Correlation methods were used to analyze climatic and SO4 deposition. Effects of SO4 deposition are greater on climatically stressed trees, especially pine species on dry sites, than on unstressed trees. Jack pine growth shows the...
This proceedings of Aspen Symposium `89 contains 31 papers balanced between the subjects of aspen ecology and silvics, aspen management and silviculture, and aspen products and utilization. It also includes eight brief papers based on poster presentations.
ECOPHYS is an ecophysiological whole-tree growth process model designed to simulate the growth of poplar in the establishment year. This microcomputer-based model may be used to test the influence of genetically determined physiological or morphological attributes on plant growth. This manual describes the installation, file structures, and operational procedures for...
The third inventory of Indiana's timber resource shows that area of timberland increased from 3.9 to 4.3 million acres between 1967 and 1986, and growing-stock volume gained from 3.7 to 5.2 billion cubic feet. Presented are analysis and statistics on forest area and timber volume, growth, mortality, removals, and projections.
In 1989 the fourth forest inventory of the Norwest Ozarks found 2.2 million acres of timberland, an increase of nearly 13% since 1972. This bulletin presents highlights and statistics on area, volume, growth, removals, and mortality.
In 1989 the fourth forest inventory of the Eastern Ozarks found 4.3 million acres of forest land, of which 4.1 million acres (96%) was timberland. This bulletin presents highlights and statistics on area, volume, growth, removals, mortality.
Simple second-order (quadratic) polynomials were used to model the relationship between 3-year biomass increase (net ovendry weight in grams) and flooding duration (days) for four combinations of shrub type (alder, willow) and soils type (fine-sand, clay-loam).
Presents a graphical procedure for evaluating the same sensitivity of lakes to acidification due to acid deposition. The procedure is based on empirical relationships between sulfur (and in some cases nitrogen) deposition rates and lake pH, acid-neutralizing capacity, base cation concentrations, and the amount of runoff.
Discusses recent Iowa forest industry trends, timber removals for industrial roundwood in 1980, production and receipts of saw logs in 1988, and production of other industrial roundwood products in 1988. Reports on wood and bark residue generated at primary mills and the disposition of this residue.
Discusses recent Missouri forest industry trends; production and receipts of saw logs; and production of charcoal, veneer logs, cooperage logs, and other products in 1987. Reports on logging residue, on wood and bark residue generated at primary wood-using mills, and on disposition of this residue.
Discusses recent Michigan forest industry trends; production and receipts of pulpwood, saw logs, and veneer logs; and production of other timber products in 1988. Reports on logging residue, on wood and bark residue generated at primary wood-using mills, and on disposition of this mill residue.
Discusses and analyzes 1986 fuelwood production from roundwood in Michigan. Analyzes production by geographic area, type of producer, species, landowner class, type of land, and tree source.
Presents and compares the chunkwood sizes obtainable with the USDA Forest Service prototype wood chunker using four different blade configurations, and the results of further chunkwood reduction with three methods totally separate from the chunking process.
Describes nongame bird densities and diversity in a central Missouri oak-hickory forest 1 year before and 3 years after portions were clearcut. Discusses changes in species density and diversity and their management implications.
