DescriptionThe 2-cut shelterwood silvicultural system is the most reliable method we have for regenerating even-aged hardwoods. Unlike other systems it can be used for all hardwood species, both small- and large-seeded, but will probably be used most often for the small-seeded ones such as yellow birch, paper birch, and hemlock.
