Abstract:

The opportunity to reduce reestablishment costs by intensive utilization during harvesting was evaluated. On the tracts studied, site preparation savings of at least $25/ac and of as much as $100/ac were realized on the stands where intensive utilization of the aboveground biomass was carried out. Significant differences in growth or survival were seldom observed on re-established stands which received a mechanical site preparation treatment following harvesting to either conventional or intensive utilization standards.
