This will lead to continuing price inflation for veneer-quality timber and stronger incentives to manage prime timber stands to promote the yield of the highest grade sawlogs and veneer logs. .

IMPACTS OF THREE TIMBER STAND IMPROVEMENT THINNING OPTIONS ON LOW-QUALITY SOUTHERN MIXED-HARDWOOD STANDS. Brian P. Oswald and Thomas H. Green. 1. Abstract-The impact of three thinning options (strip, single-tree selection, and strip with selection between strips) on low­ quality southern mixed-hardwood stands was evaluated in northern Alabama.

Specific objectives were (1) to determine the amount of logging damage and formation of epicormic branches on residual trees retained at three BA retention levels (, 25, and 50 percent), and (2) to assess the severity and type of damage on residual trees associated with the different levels of harvesting.

Wood Resources International LLC: Wood costs for the hardwood pulp producers have fallen worldwide the past three years, while softwood fiber costs have remained fairly stable. To examine these patterns, we used a natural experiment with sample plots in 69 unevenly aged, selection silviculture-managed, maple (Acer spp.)-dominated northern hardwood stands.
