Abstract

Diameter-limit cutting is widespread and is applied in a great many ways, often without appreciation of its advantages and disadvantages and withoutan understanding of its effects on subsequent stand development. Although the technique has advantages, unless applied carefully, it can have longlasting adverse effects on sawtimber production. The latest results of studies of diameter-limit cutting on the Fernow Experimental Forest, near Parsons, W. Va., shed additional light on its use as a silvicultural tool for sawtimber production.
