Title: Planting Hardwoods

Author: Johnson, Robert L.;

Date: 1983

Source: Forest Farmer October 1983: 16-17

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Southern hardwood forests contain many species and grow on a wide range of sites. This diversity among species represents a challenge to managers whose primary tool in the natural forest is stand manipulation. Even-aged management has been applied to many natural stands during the past 25 years which led, in the 1960s, to clearcutting as the primary silvicultural system. Recently, however, more consideration has been given to uneven-aged management, partly because so many landowners have goals for their woodlands in addition to, or other than, timber.
