A Tree Classification for Aspen, Jack Pine, and Second-Growth Red Pine
With the increasing demands for forest products as a result of the war, intermediate cuttings assume new importance since they can provide much wood and at the same time improve the forest. Moreover, as forest management becomes more intensive, the role of intermediate cuttings will increase in importance. To guide such cuttings effectively, a new tree classification scheme for three important Lake States species is presented. Basically, the classification makes it possible to identify in the field the type of tree which is most likely to retain or increase its vigor and thus enables foresters better to mold the final character of the stand itself.
