DescriptionNational Forests in the United States are under sustainable ecosystem management to conserve biodiversity, achieve sustainable conditions and improve the balance among forest values. This paper reports on a study established to identify the implications of ecosystem management strategies on natural stands in the Piedmont and Coastal Plain. The impact of partial harvests, group selections, seed tree cuts and no human disturbance on species composition, wood properties and tree quality of pine stands in the Piedmont and Coastal Plain is described.
