Growth and Yield of Cut-Over Stands of Ponderosa Pine in Arizona Under Different Methods of Cutting
Abstract:Ponderosa pine is one of the most important timber trees in the United States. It is the most important timber tree of the Southwest. The future of the lumber industry in this region depends largely on the growth and yield of cut-over stands of ponderosa pine. For this reason and also because of the fact that the sample plots upon which this paper is based are the largest and among the oldest in the United States, Mr. Krauch's conclusions are of interest not only to foresters dealing directly with the ponderosa pine type in the Southwest but to everyone irrespective of his present tasks and duties interested in forestry in the United States.
