The Application of a Tree Classification in Marking Lodgepole Pine for Selection Cutting
Abstract:In 1937 there appeared in the JOURNAL OF FORESTRY a scheme for classifying lodgepole pine trees into four vigor classes on the basis of external appearances. Since that time rigid tests of application have been made with the result that additional and revised data which supersede the original presentation are available. By use of this tree classification system guess work is largely removed in selecting a reserve stand with the greatest possible growth potentialities.
