Willows and pin cherry are only important in the first 26 yr following fire.
While pin cherry is recruited only during the first 20 yr following fire, small numbers of aspen are present even a long time after fire.
Decreases in pin cherry, willow, aspen, and white birch are linked to lower recruitment in those species between fire events.
We hypothesized that increased soil resource availability would prolong the interval of pin cherry dominance in successional northern hardwood stands by conferring upon it a competitive advantage over the mature forest species.
The stands were chosen to meet the following criteria: (1) pre-cut forests were dominated by mature northern hardwood forests growing on well-drained soils of gentle to moderate slopes in the elevation range from 300 to 400 m; (2) all had been recently clearcut, with three stands harvested in each of the time periods 1971, 1978, and 1984-1985; (3) the naturally regenerating forests were dominated by northern hardwoods, with a high proportion of total basal area ([greater than]40%) composed of pin cherry; and (4) road access was available to within a few hundred meters of each stand.
In general, 45 individuals of each of the dominant species (pin cherry, beech, sugar maple, striped maple [Acer pensylvanicum L.], paper birch [Betula papyrifera Marsh.], and yellow birch) in each plot were chosen randomly after stratifying each population into three size classes.
