Treatment of Understory Hemlock in the Western White Pine Type
Abstract:This article discusses the desirability of slashing the understory of hemlock to secure white pine regeneration when logging the mixed western white pine stands of Northern Idaho. If not slashed, the hemlock will recover to give good volume returns; the decision as to treatment depends primarily upon the proportion of defect in the hemlock.
