An experimental technique using water extraction for evaluation of the content of ployethylene glycol of molecular weight 1,000 in wood where the ovendry weight of the untreated wood is not available was shown to be applicable for PEG-treated black oak and yellow-poplar.
Ten years after a Southern Appalachian hardwood stand was clearcut, numbers of stems of desirable species appear adequate to restock the area. Yellow-poplar will dominate on the better sites. Some problems are anticipated from grapevines, black locust thickets, and red maple clumps.
