  • Even-aged Harvesting Methods - Shelterwood, Seed Tree, Clearcutting

    Etiketter: Forestry
    Many tree species do not tolerate major shade during the early stages of development. These stages include early seedling germination, development and sapling growth stable enough to compete in mid-canopy. These tree species have to have some light for regenerating and ensuring future even-aged stands for that species. Most of these timber types are mostly coniferous with a few exceptions. / About.com Forestry
