The harvesting of trees such that only certain trees are cut down and the land is not stripped bare.
The periodic removal of individuals or groups of trees.
A cutting method that removes only a portion of trees in a stand.
Harvesting only mature trees of certain species and size; usually more expensive than clear-cutting, but it is less disruptive for wildlife and often better for forest regeneration.
A loose term for the periodic removal of trees (particularly the mature) individually or in small groups.
the cutting of intermediate-aged, mature, or diseased trees in an uneven-aged forest stand, either singly or in small groups. This encourages the growth of younger trees and maintains an uneven-aged stand.
The periodic removal of individual trees or groups of trees to improve or regenerate a stand.
