We apologise for the inconvenience. Please try again later.

A 38.3-acre uneven-aged Indiana woodland of mixed hardwoods has been managed by a selection method of silviculture over three periods totaling 18 years. Objectives of management, which have been met, included (1) production of a continued periodic income from timber sales (2) progress toward a balanced stand structure, (3) maintenance of a favorable wildlife habitat, and (4) retention of visual attractiveness. Net annual growth increased, averaging 306 board feet (Doyle) per acre for the 18-year period. The volume per acre increased from 8,700 board feet in 1960 to 11,000 in 1978, and 3,200 board feet were removed in harvest cuttings.
