Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)
Description: Proper thinning of dense young stands of ponderosa pine increases the growth rate of remaining trees and thereby shortens the time required to grow timber of any desired size. The extent of improvement in growth is shown by thinning studies in the Pacific Northwest covering periods of 10 to 24 years. These studies, together with general experience and research in other pine regions, are summarized in this paper. The discussion is largely confined to stands of premerchantable size, which now means stands not yet producing saw logs at least 8 inches in diameter.
