    Description

    The disease problems of old growth are largely being taken care of by cutting. This same cutting is rapidly converting large areas of old growth to reproduction and young growth. It is in these areas of young growth that our disease problems will most probably arise. With a few exceptions the reproduction and young-growth stands appear quite healthy at this time with the diseases that are present just doing a bit of natural thinning. These new stands should be closely studied. Damage appearing in young stands may be due to—or may be corrected by—certain silvicultural practices such as thinning, or perhaps completely prevented by a modification of the methods used in removing the previous stand.
