Chemical Control of Vegetative Competition in Aspen Plantings

During the past decade. aspens have become the most important pulpwood species in the Lake States. These species have many assets; these include rapid growth, short rotation, and regeneration into a fully stocked stand when properly harvested. Genetic manipulation of the species has vast potential for further improving growth and wood quality. Raising aspen from seed has been described earlier by the authors (2), and apparently the method described can be modified for com-mercial use. The immediate problem after production of the hybrids is outplanting the seedlings in a manner which is economical and will give good results.
