DescriptionTHE FORESTER'S JOB, if he is concerned with producing tree crops, is to grow the large t volume of the most valuable species. Thus, in practically every timber r egion in the United States, foresters encounter the problem of limiting the growth of less valued species which inhibit high production of the preferred species. Often these less desired species are utterly worthless and are referred to simply as "brush. " F or example, laurel and rhododendron slicks cover vast areas in the Southern Appalachians that could produce valued tree crops. Yaupon in East Texas, hazel brush and alder in the Lake States, and manzanita and bear clover in California are other examples of brush that r educe yields and often entirely exclude the valuable tree species.
