Fifty Years' Progress in Converting Virgin Southwestern Ponderosa Pine to Managed Stands
Abstract:An uneven-aged, understocked virgin forest of ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa Laws.) was partially harvested by group selection, improvement selection, and salvage cutting. This reduced mortality and board-foot increment and increased cubic-foot increment in the residual stands. The conventional cutting systems suggested for the future will lead to even-aged stands where present stand structure will permit, and to group selection stands where present structure is many-aged.
