Abstract

In the Northeast, we recognize mixedwood stands as hardwood- softwood mixtures in which neither component contributes more than 75% - 80% of stocking (usually assessed in terms of basal area). Such stands have long been recognized in regional forest type codes used by commercial land managers, i.e., SH for softwood-dominated mixedwoods and HS for hardwood-dominated mixedwoods.
