Title: Selection cutting reduces ponderosa pine losses at Pringle Falls.

Author: Mowat, Edwin L.;

Date: 1948

Source: PNW Old Series Research Notes No. 45, p. 1-3

Publication Series: Research Note (RN)

Description: One of the aims of selection cutting in ponderosa pine forests is to reduce the heavy mortality, from bark beetle attack and other causes that is common in most virgin stands. How much the loss can be reduced is shown by a 10-year record at the Pringle Falls Experimental Forest in central Oregon. Here selection cutting has reduced loss on cutting areas to only about one-sixth of the loss on an uncut check area.
