Abstract:A 38-year period of group selection in northern hardwoods is resulting in a permanent composition of one-quarter to one-third intermediate and intolerant species. The diameter distribution follows the inverse J-shaped form that typifies uneven-aged stands. Uneven-aged management based on a combination of group and single-tree selection appears to be silviculturally sound.
