    In New England, snowshoe hares favor second-growth aspen (Populus spp.)-birch (Betula spp.) near conifers, but other forest types occupied by snowshoe hares include aspens, paper birch (B. papyrifera), northern hardwoods, red maple (A. rubrum), balsam fir (Abies balsamea), red spruce (Picea rubens)-balsam fir, eastern hemlock (Tsuga canadensis.

    Silvicultural Guide for Northern Hardwoods in the Northeast Updated. Year: This revision of the silvicultural guide updates and expands the silvicultural information on northern hardwoods. It provides additional information on wildlife habitat and managing mixed-wood and northern hardwood-oak stand. This statement applies to portions of the northern hardwood forest under active forest management, such as in northwestern New Brunswick and central Ontario (Betts et al. , Holmes et al. ), whereas in certain regions of New England, massive reforestation has now caused a shortage of habitat for early-seral species that may require.

Foster, J.R., and A.W. August ,   Moose (Alces alces) populations have experienced a regional increase in northern New England over the last several decades, making them an increasingly valuable wildlife resource. They play an important role ecologically and economically in Vermont, with 78% of the state open to regulated moose hunting and hunting permits issued statewide.

Forest degradation has been a focus of recent concern, especially in tropical countries, but temperate forests may also exhibit degradation. Our analysis of USDA Forest Service Forest Inventory and Analysis data shows that nearly 40% of the forestland in northern New England, USA, (Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont) is in an understocked condition when species desirability and.

Evaluation of year temporal and spatial variability in structure and growth across contrasting commercial thinning treatments in spruce-fir forests of northern Maine, USA Article Mar At the stand scale, these localized and asynchronous events can create a patchwork mosaic of microsites comprised of different tree species, ages, diameters, heights, crown spreads, and growth rates.

Through the modification of fine-scale biophysical conditions, these localized canopy disturbances promote heterogeneity and biodiversity in. For mature northern hardwoods, the USDA Forest Service recently reported mean live tree C storage between 60 and 80 Mg/ha, standing dead C between 2 and 4 Mg/ha, and downed log C between 6 and 9 Mg/ha.

Oak-Hardwood Forest Oaks and other hardwood species are more predominant. 1. Introduction. During the past decade, many scientists and foresters in North America have begun to embrace an ecological, natural disturbance paradigm for management (Seymour and Hunter, ).The degree to which on-the-ground management actually conforms to natural patterns varies widely, however, due in part to a lack of specific, quantitative guidelines for emulating natural .The age distribution of yellow birch in a virgin northern hardwoods forest was somewhat irregular: There were many year-old saplings, no year-old trees, and many year-old trees.

In Wisconsin, even-aged northern hardwoods contain a high proportion of yellow birch and uneven-aged stands tend towards pure sugar maple. In many old.New England only the basal area of red oaks (subgenus Erythrobalanus) in the overstory located within 10 m of northern red oak (Quercus rubra L.) subject trees is negatively correlated with the basal area growth of these subject trees.
