Description

All of the climax tree species in Maine are shade tolerant. This means that they have the capacity of surviving and growing slowly in the seedling, sapling and pole-size stages. As a result none of the established methods employing total age are applicable. In searching for a way to overcome this problem an entirely new approach to quantitative site evaluation was conceived. This study evaluates this new mensurational approach to site evaluation for shade-tolerant trees.
