Abstract

Partial harvesting is thought to result in more structurally diverse forest stands, providing a promising alternative to clearcutting and helping balance timber production and biodiversity conservation. Evidence for this hypothesis is based mostly on understory vegetation communities, with little...

Abstract

Multi-cohort-based forest management has been proposed as a strategy to conciliate wood supply and biodiversity conservation objectives. At the stand-level, the approach involves using partial harvesting to generate structurally complex stands, notably in terms of tree age, size and species...

Although partial harvesting has been proposed as a measure for maintaining compositional and structural characteristics of natural old-growth stands, it has not been rigorously evaluated. The first objective of this study was to compare forest composition and structural characteristics after...

Abstract

During the 1956 summer, tree mortality as a result of girdling by black bears was observed for the first time in the Spruce/Fir stands of N. Maine. The bears show a definite preference for Balsam Fir in the large-pole size-class; reasons for this preference are not known. KEYWORDS: Abies balsamea...

Abstract

Discusses 10-year results of thinning in 1947 in a 28-year-old stand of Populus tremuloides, P. balsamifera, Abies balsamea and Picea glauca, thinned (a) from below to leave 300, or (b) 200, crop trees per acre, and (c) from above, removing 10-12 cords/acre, or (d) clear felling. Mortality on all...
