Abstract:

Analysis of cutting opportunities for oak-hickory forests of Pennsylvania reveals a timber bonanza for expanding wood-using plants. The current potential cut from silvicultural thinning, regeneration, and harvest opportunities totals 58 million cords. It amounts to 20 times the current annual harvest of all hardwood volume from the state. On the stump, the conversion value of this material totals $615 million. Moreover, the good housekeeping associated with the silviculture would improve timber productivity and quality. North. J. Appl. For. 4:59-63, June 1987.
