    Description

    On the Fernow Experimental Forest in West Virginia, as on several other experimental forests in the Northeast, studies are being conducted to compare the biologic and economic results of different methods of forest management. The experiments are being carried out on compartments varying in size from 50 t o 150 acres. Such areas are large enough to permit the simulation of commercial logging operations. The treatments applied to these compartments are designed to encompass different silvicultural systems, different product objectives, and different intensities of forest management. Essentially they are long-term studies.
