Increasing Production of Critical Lumber Grades by Selective Cutting

The full text article is temporarily unavailable.

We apologise for the inconvenience. Please try again later.

This article presents numerous facts in support of the conclusion that clear cutting in the old-growth, northern-hardwood forest tends to reduce the production of certain lumber grades and products essential to the war. High-grade trees must be more selectively and more exclusively logged in order to increase the production of critical high-grade lumber. This careful tree selection need not bypass sound silviculture, and it does not require curtailing total lumber production. Overcuts in violation of sustaiued-yield plans must be made. In fact, the total amount of timber cut and the area cut over must be increased to the limit of the man, machine, and material power available. The amount cut per unit of area only must be reduced.
