DescriptionTwo sample plots in poletimber-small sawtimber stands of Allegheny hardwoods were thinned to improve crop-tree spacing. Thinning produced nearly 35 tons per acre of wood fiber, including 13 tons of sawable boltwood, 3-l/2 tons of standard sawlogs, 18 tons of pulpwood, and 1 ton of fuelwood. Nearly 3,700 board feet of lumber and cants were produced from the sawbolts and sawlogs. An additional 34 tons suitable for wood chips or fuelwood or both were available but not harvested.
