Description

"(1) To determine the vegetative response produced by three sizes of forest clearings, 0.256, 0.576 and 1.600 acres; (2) to determine if differences in response exist between strip clearings and square clearings, and, if so, what the differences are: (3) to determine the longevity of the response produced by the above variables; (4) to determine if differences in vegetative response exist between strip clearings oriented north-south and east-west, and, if so, what the differences are; (5) to particularly observe the response of vegetation of known importance to wildlife, and to attempt to correlate this with evidence of use by wildlife; and, (6) to observe the possibilities of the clearings for regenerating cut-over hardwood stands."

Project Title

Wildlife Habitat Improvement in the Central Adirondack Mountains

Comments

" In 1959 four study areas were chosen in a cut-over Northern Hardwood Forest type on the Archer and Anna Huntington Wildlife Forest Station in the Central Adirondacks. Seven clearing locations were described in each of these study areas interacting three sizes, 1.6, O.576 and O.256 acres, with two shapes, square and north-south oriented strip. A second O.576 acre strip was oriented east to west in each study area."
