Abstract:In the state forests and on privately owned land in Pennsylvania are many acres of pine plantations 20-30 years old, badly in need of thinning. Numerous studies have been made of the advantages of thinning, such as possible increased increment and better crown development. Such study is needed to determine the best methods of thinning. Usually, however, the private planter wants to know the financial advantages of such work. He may not be satisfied with the answer that the remaining trees may eventually produce more wood or lumber. He wants some return now, not in the future, and as an investor he is entitled to it. The author describes the profitable utilization of wood from a thinning operation in a plantation in the Mont Alto State Forest.
