In 17 areas, mostly in the Coastal Plain and Piedmont sections of New Jersey and Maryland, treatments were made to favor the establishment and growth of yellow-poplar reproduction. Results emphasize the importance of fairly large overstory openings (preferably 1 acre or more) and of reductions in understories by mistblowing, burning, or disking, but show that seedbed...
Red oaks and yellow-poplars in a stand of second-growth cove hardwoods in West Virginia were studied to determine whether visible dormant buds are related to tree size or log position. No correlation was found between dormant buds and tree size, for either species; but yellow-poplars had a significantly greater number of buds on the upper log.
A study of growth at d.b.h. among eight hardwood species after partial cutting in second-growth stands. Red oak grew fastest, followed in order by yellow-poplar, sugar maple, basswood, black cherry, white ash, beech, and chestnut oak.
