Selective Marking in Ponderosa Pine on a Klamath Falls Tree Farm
Abstract:The marking system applied on this Klamath Falls tree farm is designed to avoid disproportionate increase in costs of logging and area development and to reserve trees which are effective producers. Detailed rules are given, together with considerations relating to stand conditions and individual tree character which may call for their modification. It is made clear that the measures here outlined do not rest upon exact calculations but represent the application of available experience to reduce the costs of growing timber and to increase the returns.
