    Description

    The group selection method combines some of the advantages of even-aged silvicultural methods with those of uneven-aged methods. The method maintains a fairly continuous tree canopy, which provides a more natural appearance to the forest than does any even-aged method. By creating small canopy openings, it also provides the light necessary for the growth of species that are shade intolerant or only moderately shade tolerant such as the oaks. However, there is little information on the application of the method in the Central Hardwood Region. This report describes the results of a research study on regeneration of group selection openings in south central Indiana.
