The 10-year growth of a 55-year-old, even-aged western larch (Larix occidentalis Nutt.) stand after it was thinned from above and below to a wide range of stocking levels was measured in eastern Oregon. Basal area and volume growth increased as stand density increased for both thinning…

Two Appalachian hardwood stands in north-central West Virginia were thinned. The principal species were red oak, yellow-poplar, and chestnut oak. For both stands the site index for northern red oak averaged 75 feet. An areawide thinning using "basal-area control" was applied to a 54-yearold stand…

Proposed construction in Missouri of pulpmills using oak cordwood should result in a greater demand for pole-size oak trees, thus making needed thinnings feasible in young oak stands. According to the 1958 forest survey, poletimber stands (which are mainly oak) occupy 39 percent of the commercial…
