DescriptionForesters and landowners alike desire alternatives to traditional silvicultural techniques. For example, many landowners arc unwilling to clearcut their forest. They want economic return, but not at the expense of removing the entire forest. Yet, in the South, most knowledgeable foresters are reluctant to recommend selection cutting because it too readily drifts into "high grading" if done improperly. In addition, on public lands, society often places a higher value on forest amenities other than commercial timber production.
