Cost: $25 members      $35 nonmembers
Each time the quiz is taken, a fee will be required.

The Northern Journal of Applied Forestry Quiz is approved for 3.0 continuing forestry education (CFE) credit hour in Category 1-CF by the Society of American Foresters. Successful completion of the self-assessment, defined as a cumulative score of at least 70%, is required to earn CFE credit. CFE approval is valid for one year from the issue date of publication, and participants may submit the quiz at any time during that period.

Please provide the following information and select one answer for each question. If you do not wish to pay by credit card, you may complete the quiz by printing the PDF version, and mailing it and the fee to: SAF, 5400 Grosvenor Lane, Bethesda, MD 20814 ATTN: Pat Cillay.

1. According to the Farrell article, which species would be most suitable for leasing taps for syrup productionfrom a landowner's perspective?
a) Sugar maple
b) Red maple
c) Silver maple
2. Which of these states has a program that can offer reduction in property taxes to landowners that utilize their woodland for maple syrup production?
a) Vermont
b) New York
c) New Hampshire .
3. According to the article by Dubeau et al., piece-rates may have adverse effects on worker behavior by:
a) inducing low profits for companies.
b) inducing high productivity variability between workers.
c) inducing unsafe behavior and increasing effort level above recommended standards.
4. The Dubeau et al. study found a weak relationship between lack of crop tree visibility and ETC. This may be explained by:
a) crop tree height variability being too important to allow visibility to enter the productivity model.
b) the subjective assessment of crop tree visibility.
c) cognitive adaptations to poor visibility, such as anticipating the location of the next crop tree based on the location of the last on in the row.
5. The results of the Parrott et al. study suggest:
a) it may be prudent to perform midstory removal only when adequate numbers of oak reproduction are present.
b) midstory removal results in more than twice as many oak stems as competing stems collectively.
c) basal area reduction should be greater to stimulate oak seedling establishment.
6. Which of the following was found to be a result in the Parrott et al. study of midstory removal?
a) Red maple abundance and growth was inhibited.
b) Red oaks were the most numerous stems present following treatment.
c) The density of shade intolerant competitors was likely not increased by midstory removal.
7. Madec et al. observed that most of the seedling establishment occurred during the first couple of years after scarification because:
a) of the rapid closing up of scarification furrows over time.
b) of the infrequent good seed years of black spruce.
c) of the high mortality rate of newly established black spruce seedlings
8. The results of the Madec et al. study suggest which long-term consequence of this silvicultural approach in boreal lichen woodlands?
a) Scarified lichen woodlands could reach a fully stocked structure, with the complement of underplanting.
b) Scarified lichen woodlands could reach a fully stocked structure, but only including a mix of trees other than black spruces.
c) Scarified lichen woodlands could reach a fully stocked structure without underplanting.
9. What factor was not found to influence growth of American chestnut on reclaimed minelands in the Gilland and McCarthy study?
a) Total soil N
b) Planting position relative to the top of the mound
c) Planting distance relative to a remaining forest edge
10. Gilland and McCarthy found which of the following relative to vegetative cover classes in their study?
a) Heavy vegetative cover plots showed significantly lower seedling survival rates compared to intermediate and low vegetative cover plots.
b) Heavy vegetative cover plots showed significantly higher seedling survival rates compared to intermediate and low vegetative cover plots.
c) Heavy vegetative cover plots showed no significant difference in seedling survival rates compared to intermediate and low vegetative cover plots.
