Abstract

Allegheny hardwood stands in the Pennsylvania portion of the type frequently contain dense understories of undesirable species such as hayscented fern (Dennstaedtia punctilobula (Michx.) Moore), New York fern (Thelypteris noveboracensis L.), grasses and sedges (Carex spp.), striped maple (Acer pensylvanicum L.) and beech (Fagus grandifolia Ehrh.). Once established, they interfere with the establishment of advance regeneration of desirable species. The use of herbicides is a practical means of controlling undesirable species.
