Abstract:

The stand development and financial returns from eight different cutting procedures in northern hardwood stands are evaluated. Stand tables recommended for northern hardwoods by Arbogast and others could be approximated following one or two 10-year cutting periods using light improvement or basal area limit cuts. Total economic return was greatest in the most severe diameter limit cuts (5-, 12-, and 16-in) but achieving these high initial returns may preclude any further returns for an extended period. The 16-in diameter limit cut provided what may be the best combination of total return and even flow of returns over the 22-year study period. North. J. Appl. For. 3:35-38, Mar. 1986.
