Management Options for Poorly Stocked Stands in the South Central United States
In the south central United States more than 22 million acres of timberland are now poorly stocked. Three-fourths of this poorly stocked timberland is in nonindustrial private forest ownership. Much of this acreage could be developed into satisfactory timber stands with additional treatment efforts. Opportunities to improve the quality, growth, and yield of partially stocked timberlands are often neglected. The control of competing vegetation to favor current growing stock must be assessed as an alternative to clearing and planting. South. J. Appl. For. 10:73-77, May 1986.
