Does Light Burning Stimulate Aspen Suckers? ll
Journal of Forestry
In an earlier article the author reported that light burning caused a significant increase in the production and growth of aspen root suckers. His present paper supplements the first and tends to support the original hypothesis that this stimulation is due to the increased heat absorption of the blackened surface. The data presented indicate that the stimulation disappears after the first year.
