The importance of economic selection in logging has been accentuated by the silvicultural requirements under Article X of the Lumber Code. As a vehicle for progress toward silvicultural objectives, economic selection has the merit of offering a chance to reach a long way toward such objectives without addition to current operating cost. The following article, although limited to the economic aspects of selection in logging, offers guidance toward a properly balanced combination of economic and silvicultural objectives for the Douglas fir region. The writer is a graduate of the Cornell College of Forestry and of the Yale Forest School. For the past 17 years he has been Western Manager of James D. Lacey & Co.
