News From the Field
A new look at old forests

June 2, 2014

Harvard Forest in Petersham, Mass. As forests age, their ability to grow decreases because energy production (photosynthesis) and energy consumption (respiration) decrease with age, a new study by Marine Biological Laboratory scientists and colleagues has determined. Since most U.S. forests are maturing from regeneration that began about 100 years ago, when extensive clear-cutting occurred, the study suggests the future growth of U.S. forests will decline.
