    Description

    In the past, markets for quaking aspen timber from the Rocky Mountains have been insufficient to support significant harvesting. This shortage of markets severely restrained the potential for aspen management. As a result, many stands protected from wildfire gradually reverted to conifers (see the VEGETATIVE REGENERATION and FIRE chapters).
