Although the Biltmore thinning experiments are limited in size and scope they are of interest to foresters because few other plantation thinnings in this country have been running for as long as 20 years. The plantations, now 30 to 50 years old, are about all that is left of what Gifford Pinchot once called "the first practical application of forest management in the United States." The thinnings here described are carrying forward on an experimental scale some of the activities that would have been general in the plantations if that early venture had been continued.
