Turkey Lakes tree harvesting impacts project: chapter 4
Selection System - Compartment 33
Mature and/or undesirable trees are removed individually or in small groups over short intervals (cutting cycles) to develop an uneven-aged stand structure. Regeneration is natural. This system is particularly suited to the management of sugar maple.
Improve growing conditions for acceptable growing stock while developing an acceptable stand structure. Allow some group selection openings for yellow birch regeneration.
Target residual basal area: 18 m2/ha
