Selection System in Northern Hardwoods

The full text article is temporarily unavailable.

We apologise for the inconvenience. Please try again later.

Northern hardwood stands with multiple age classes allow immediate use of selection system to control the diameter and age-class distributions. This ensures consistency in yields, ecological conditions, visual qualities, and other values. To convert even-aged communities, landowners must partition the cut of upper canopy trees over many decades, regenerating a new age class with each entry. In both cases, landowners must commit to the long-term program of deliberate management that selection system requires.
