DescriptionSometimes a name creates a problem. The name of a silvicultural system usually refers to the way a stand is cut to get regeneration-"single tree selection"-for example. Trouble is, the name suggests that the regeneration cut will be the first treatment applied to the stand. Not so. We are now mostly making "intermediate" cuts in our Lake States stands and bringing them to maturity; then we can make the "regeneration" (or "harvest) cuts to reproduce them.
