Prescribing Silvicultural Systems
Abstract:Modern silviculture is faced with satisfying multiple demands on the forest resource and with preventing abuse of the forest ecosystem and diminution of its capacity for providing goods and services. This requires an analysis of biological, physical, social and economic factors basic to the correct prescription of silviculture in a given case. These factors are discussed and applied in a sample case to a Ranger District in West Virginia.
