Abstract

New England forest managers are faced with numerous environmental issues, such as global warming, nutrient depletion, and species declines that could influence the choice of appropriate silvicultural techniques and objectives. On the Bartlett Experimental Forest, New Hampshire, 70 years of change on more than 400 remeasured cruise plots by elevation classes ranging from 600 to 2,700 ft showed no evidence of environmental impacts. The major, and only dominant, agent of change was natural succession. Time-tested silvicultural approaches remain valid.
