A KEY TO CHOOSING INTERMEDIATE SILVICULTURAL PRACTICES The following dichotomous key can be used to help a land manager choose an appropriate silvicultural practiceCited by: 6. Four C-lines that reflect insufficient stocking of southern bottomland hardwoods are presented. These C-line repres 15, 20, and 25 years to reach B-line [Show full abstract] stocking. This stocking guide is similar to the stocking guide for central upland hardwoods constructed by Gingrich, except that % stocking is ft² of basal area lower for the southern bottomland. The silviculhuist may use Putnam’s B-line to represent the optimum residual stocking level recommended for southern bottomland hardwood stands, or may choose some constant level of stocking, such as 70 percent. However, neither Putnam’s recommendations nor any other level of residual stocking have been tested scientifically.

Silviculture of southern bottomland hardwood forests has evolved considerably over the past 25 years. Many existing silvicultural practices have been . BOTTOMLAND HARDWOOD TYPE TYPE DESCRIPTION A. Stand Composition The bottomland hardwood type is associated with flood plains and stream/river bottoms, primarily in the southern two-thirds of Wisconsin.

Both diagrams for the range of 7 to 22 inches quadratic mean diameter(QMD) and 2 to 7 inches QMD are available. Additionally, the tab labeled "Stand Data" allow the user to plot their data on the diagram. southern bottomland hardwood ecosystem. Due consideration must be given to the many critical variables (e.g., stem age class distributions, crown closure, species composition, availability of cavities, ground cover, etc) needed for habitat diversity within each individual stand and across the landscape.

stock for C-level stocking. Bottomland Hardwoods Goelz () provided a stocking guide for use in southern bottomland hardwoods. The B-line is based on the suggested residual stocking of Putnam () rather than on minimum full stocking. The stocking guide applies to mixed southern bottomland hardwoods of good to excellent site quality. Current: Center for Bottomland Hardwoods Research Our Mission: To provide the scientific basis to manage southern bottomland hardwood and wetland forests and associated stream ecosystems for a sustained yield of forest products and other desired values.   The central hardwood forest region is one of the largest hardwood forest areas in the nation (Fig. ). Four distinct tree associations defined within this type are oak-hickory, oak-pine, mixed hardwoods, and elm-ash-cottonwood. In Wisconsin, the central hardwood type is located within Province which lies south of the Tension Zone (Fig).File Size: KB. We present stocking guides for southern bottomland hardwoods and variants for associated forest types, water tupelo (N~~ssa aquarica L.) and sweetgum (Liquidumbar sryrucifzua L.).
