Possibilities of Release Cuttings in Minnesota Forests
Abstract:The cut-over lands in Minnesota now occupied by aspen and birch are seeding-in to conifers in many places. Through release cuttings these areas may readily be converted into more valuable stands. Cultural work, such as this, on state and national forests provides an excellent opportunity for unemployment relief; most of the expenditure goes for labor and the work accomplished sets up no future demand for maintenance. The author describes various stands where release cuttings have been tried or where they are needed.
