Publication Series: Book Chapter

Description: The use of uneven-aged silviculture has increased markedly in the past 20 years. This is especially true in the southern United States, where the use of clearcutting and planting is often viewed as a practice whose emphasis on fiber production results in unacceptable consequences for other values, such as those that benefit from maintenance of continuous forest cover over time. Public lands in general, and national forest lands in particular, have become the focal point for the replacement of clearcutting and planting with even-aged and uneven-aged reproduction cutting methods that rely on natural regeneration, and that can better achieve management goals that are defined by residual stand structure and condition rather than by harvested volume.

Keywords: uneven-aged, longleaf pine, Pinus palustris
