Abstract:This article suggests that the forester should learn to thin stands in harmony with natural selection in the forest. The trees to be gradually cut are those which will gradually pass out of the stand due to natural causes. The selection of these trees is implemented by the use of tree vigor grading ruses. The study was completed with foresters of the Minnesota Division of Forestry and of the Minnesota & Ontario Paper Company, International Falls, Minn.
