Methods of Harvesting Sawtimber from Forests in the High Plateaus Section of Pennsylvania
Abstract:Studies of past commercial cuttings on the northern Allegheny Plateau in Pennsylvania have shown the great importance of an adequate residual growing stock as a factor influencing the periodic annual growth of sawtimber after harvest cuttings. Silvicultural cutting practices designed to take advantage of the rapid growth rates shown by some of these stands are suggested by the results of the study.
