    Description

    Describes a management prescription system for Central States cover types developed for use in the Central States Stand and Tree Evaluation and Modeling System (STEMS). It includes one management guide for each of the six major cover types in the region. Each guide consists of a decision key that prescribes management, based on stand characteristics and a set of marking rules that carries out the prescription. This management component can be used within STEMS or apart from it as a guide to making silvicultural decisions in the Central States.
