The shelterwood method is used to regenerate an even-age stand under an existing partial canopy. The method is not widely used: however, it is becoming recognized as the best way for regenerating Allegheny hardwoods. The method should be applicable with most tree species of the Northeast and has good potential as an environmentally and esthetically acceptable means of practicing even-age management. Advantages, difficulties, and examples of applications are discussed. North. J. Appl. For. 5:70-77, March 1988.
