Early Results of a Liberation Cutting in a Pine-Hardwood Stand in Northern Louisiana
Abstract:Liberation cuttings that do not remove merchantable material can often be recommended on silvicultural grounds, but the economic aspects are seldom evaluated. Indeed, there is little information on actual consequences from either a silvicultural or economic viewpoint. This article gives results obtained seven years after a liberation cutting freed a stand of many small southern pines from inferior hardwoods. Appraisal of the financial aspects indicates that the cutting was well justified.
