Management Plans for All-Age Forests
Abstract:One of the forest mensurationist's most battling of problems is the preparation of yield tables for selectively-cut, all-aged forests, especially when such forests have been cut without a well-ordered silvicultural plan. The author proposes a method based on rearranging the data in normal yield tables to make it comparable to conditions that exist in a natural all-aged forest. He believes it would also simplify the determination of the rotation and cutting cycle and indicate the amount of stock to be reserved.
