Abstract

This is a guide to silviculture only; it must not be confused with a management plan, for which it is no substitute. In this guide we attempt to specify only the method of treatment that should lead to the most efficient production of timber within the relatively small area of timber stand. We do not consider here other land uses nor important questions of timber management such as regulation of area or allowable cut, except where these factors influence silvicultural decisions.
