DescriptionThe aspen ecosystem may be managed for any one or more of the assets discussed in PART 111. RESOURCES AND USES. It is truly a multiple use type, especially in the West, where it has had limited marketability for its fiber (see the WOOD UTILIZATION chapter). Many forest types are managed for their economic value as timber. This value is the source of money for management activities, such as access road construction and maintenance, harvesting costs, regeneration costs, intermediate stand treatments, and other silvicultural treatments.
