    Description

    "Forest regulation methods" and "silvicultural systems" are important forest resource management concepts but there is much confusion about them. They often mean different things to different individuals. Confusion exists in part because "forest regulation methods" and "silvicultural systems" often use the same terminology. Also, the regulation methods described in forestry literature were conceived and developed to produce regular sustained yields of timber products from a forest. Now, there are often resources or values other than timber that may be more important to a forest landowner. Here is how we interpret and use these terms in the Central Hardwood Notes.
