Michigan's Forest Cultivation Program is an example of intensive forestry on state-owned lands. From 1973 through 1979, the administration and investment decision processes of the program were evaluated, economic criteria used to establish investment priorities, and changes instituted. Major accomplishments during those years included 51,170 acres of timber stand improvement in northern hardwoods, 2,931 acres of other timber stand improvement, 19,575 acres of jack pine regenerated, 6,795 acres of aspen regenerated, and 7,035 acres of red and white pine release. Projected average internal rates of return were highest for red and white pine release (11.1 percent) and northern hardwoods timber stand improvement (8.4 percent).
