DescriptionTwo-aged management is receiving increasing consideration by central Appalachian hardwood managers as a tool to accomplish multiple landowner goals. On non-industrial private forests where aesthetics are often important, two-aged management has the attribute of retaining some relatively large trees on the area at all times. For many landowners this is critical. Research at the Fernow Experimental Forest near Parsons, West Virginia, shows the two-aged system can also provide a means of obtaining desirable regeneration of species that are both tolerant and intolerant of growing beneath overtopping vegetation.
