    Description

    Small trees in even-aged northern hardwood stands suffer the most mechanical damage when stands are thinned for the first time. From 15 to 35 percent of the trees may be damaged; a quarter of the trees (but usually less than 20 per acre) can be seriously damaged by having at least 50 square inches of the cambium exposed. Bole damage is most common, followed by root and then crown damage.
