    Description

    Uneven-age management or partial cutting methods as described in this paper allow foresters to manage eastern hardwood stands and harvest forest products without clearcutting. These methods can involve regular periodic harvests, at least for the short term, based on stand conditions and growing-site capabilities. We are not going to make the decision as to which is the better system: even-age or uneven-age management. This is not always a viable question for foresters because in many cases landowners make the decision--No clearcutting!
