Silvics of Forest Trees of the United States, Agriculture Handbook , was the first comprehensive document of its kind in the United States. It was an edited compendium of research papers describing silvical characteristics of trees; the papers had been independently prepared by specialists at U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service . GENERAL BOTANICAL CHARACTERISTICS: Tuliptree is a tall, deciduous, long-lived, broadleaf tree. The leaves are alternate with a distinctive tuliplike shape. In forest stands tuliptree is one of the straightest and tallest trees, with approximately 66 percent of the bole free of lateral branches [1,2].It can reach heights of feet (61 m) and a dbh greater than 10 feet (3 m) . This compilation, which summarizes the important silvical characteristics and general uses of selected Southeast forest trees, was developed to serve as a study aid and field guide for undergraduate students enrolled in Forestry, Wildlife Ecology, and Resource Conservation at the University of Florida's School of Forest Resources and Conservation. Table is an attempt to show some of the individual silvical characteristics of important bottomland species in a fashion that will allow the 39 reader to compare one species with the other as well as view the other characteristics in relationship with flood tolerance within a by:
s s n BUCKEYE (Aesculus octandra Marsh.) (Aesculus glabra Wilid.) John E. Duff' DISTRIBUTION Yellow buckeye is native to a restricted range (fig. 1) that extends southwest from southwestern Pennsylvania on both sides of the Ohio River to southeastern Illinois, including the southern third of Ohio, a small part of southern Indiana, and parts of Kentucky that border.

At the same time no good correlation of bending quality with spe- cific gravity, rate of growth, standard toughness, or applied end pres- sure could be found.
