An Evaluation of Four Uneven-age Cutting Practices in Central Appalachian Hardwoods
Abstract:Uneven-age cutting practices discussed include individual tree selection, group selection, diameter limit, and financial maturity. Of these, only the individual selection practice has the necessary guidelines to regulate stand composition in the uneven-age management system. Group-selection, diameter-limit, and financial-maturity cuts are regeneration methods used to produce uneven-aged stands. Strengths, weaknesses, and methods of application of each cutting practice are described as they relate to central Appalachian hardwoods.
