Vulnerability to strong winds for major tree species in a northern Japanese mixed forest: analyses of historical data

  title={Vulnerability to strong winds for major tree species in a northern Japanese mixed forest: analyses of historical data},

This study examined historical census data to evaluate the vulnerability of major tall-tree species in northern Japan to strong winds. Intensive data, which measured more than 20,000 damaged trees (defined as trees that were killed or lost their major crown) in >500 ha of a natural mixed forest, were collected immediately after a severe typhoon in 1954. More than half of the damaged trees had been uprooted, and the negative size-dependency was found for the proportion of uprooting throughout… CONTINUE READING
