Description: Thinning produces bigger and better trees faster. Thinning removes poor quality trees and concentrates growth on the best. Total wood production increases because trees that would otherwise die from competition are harvested. Rotation ages for sawtimber can be shortened as much as 20 years. Or, we can grow bigger, more valuable trees using the same rotation age as an unthinned stand.
