    Description

    Now that even-aged silviculture is well established as a successful method of growing Appalachian hardwoods, a pressing need exists for guidelines for precommercial operations. We started research several years ago on the Fernow Experimental Forest near Parsons, West Virginia, to learn more about the cost and methodology of early crop-tree release in mountain hardwood stands. In addition, we designed studies to evaluate the biological response of stands and stems to various treatments or combinations of treatments to get some measure of their response in the framework of a practical type of operation.
