DescriptionThere is a definite distinction between the basic concept of unit area control and the specific techniques or treatments used for specific units. Unit area control as a term was first used in connection with a cutting trial in the sugar pine-fir type; consequently, many foresters think the term refers merely to the technique used in sugar pine management, This is not the case, Applying silviculture unit areas is appropriate and desirable for other major types as well. So far, however, techniques have been developed only for pine and mixed-conifer types in the Sierra Nevada. The remainder of this discussion is concerned with these types.
