Additional information about stand origin:
Prior to treatment, the aspen was estimated to be 39-42 years old, putting its origin date around 1977. A clearcut of much of the stand occurred in 2010 and was planted in 2011, so the current stand is 6 years old.

According to the USDA Web Soil Survey tool available online, the soil within the stand is primarily Cutaway loamy sand, a well-drained soil with slopes ranging from 0% to 8%.
