A Preliminary Stand Classification for Lodgepole Pine in the Intermountain Region
Abstract:Differences in age, composition, density, and other attributes commonly occur between forest stands. Unless forest researchers and managers understand these differences they are handicapped in their respective tasks of developing and applying proper stand management techniques. A classification that defines the various stands within a forest type and describes how they may be easily identified can be of great assistance. Such a classification for the lodgepole pine stands in the Intermountain region is presented here.
