DescriptionDescribes a harvesting and regeneration pattern for red pine stands to make efficient use of mechanized full-tree harvesting. The system is not just an engineering operation to extract trees, but a forest management operatioin to harvest mature timber, prepare the site for regeneration, and provide environmental conditions favoring tree growth and multiple-use of the forest.
