The Influence of Defect Upon Management of Southwestern Ponderosa Pine Stands
Abstract:Much has been written about the amount and character of defect in logs and in individual trees, but little upon that of stands and its effect upon management problems. With a knowledge of the portions of the stands which contribute or are likely to contribute the greatest amount to loss of merchantable volume through various forms of defect, one is able to salvage that portion of the stand likely to be lost before the next cut and to reserve the most productive portion.
