    Description

    One way to treay a timber stand is to ignore it--simply let it grow. This treatment will in time produce usable timber. And this is how many small woodlands in the Northeast are treated today. The question is: How well does this treatment work in returning a profit to the owner? As a guide for forest managers, the Northeastern Forest Experiment Station has made an economic study of this let-it-grow treatment. We found that the profitability of this treatment depends mainly upon the age of the stand and the timber markets available.
