DescriptionA comparison of inventories of six mixed hardwood compartments on the Kaskaskia Experimental Forest - made 12 years apart - shows that the three that received a cull-removal treatment as well as group-selection harvests were moving toward achieving sustained yields of medium to large sawtimber more rapidly than the three that had received only the group-selection harvests. Cull removal created value differences great enough to pay for the treatment two times out of three.
