Title: Suggestions for getting more forestry in the logging plan.

Author: Ruth, Robert H.; Silen, Roy R.;

Date: 1950

Source: PNW Old Series Research Notes No. 72, p. 1-19

Publication Series: Research Note (RN)

Description: The staggered-setting system of clear-cutting is fast becoming prevailing practice in the Douglas-fir region. The trend is away from large, continuous clear cuts to clear-cutting smaller units of timber of less than 80 acres. These are called staggered settings because the surrounding stand is left uncut to provide seed and serve as a firebreak. Major aims of this system are to obtain better regeneration and reduce fire losses.
