The coastal redwood type is particularly well adapted, both economically and silviculturally, to selective cutting. By means of tree selection, tractor logging, and more care in slash burning it is possible to shorten the next cutting cycle materially by leaving good stands of redwoods that are now financially immature. A basis for reasonably reliable estimates of the yields of these residual stands should stimulate wider interest in the most advanced redwood-management practices.
