Title: Uneven-aged management of northern hardwoods in New England

Author: Leak, William B.; Filip, Stanley M.

Date: 1975

Source: Res. Pap. NE-332. Upper Darby, PA: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Northeastern Forest Experiment Station. 15p.

Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: Three main aspects of uneven-aged management in northern hardwoods are discussed: (1) choice of cutting method, including selection, group selection, and patch selection; (2) control of yields, which involves the establishment of structural goals, the control of marking operations, and the prediction of allowable harvest; and (3) the transportation or removal of products - truck roads, skidroads, and harvesting precautions. Emphasis is on flexibility: the possibilities of applying a range of cutting methods and structural goals to conform to varied objectives and stand conditions.
