Age of maturity and optimal felling age of beech stands

, : Age of maturity and optimal felling age of beech stands. Folia Forestalia Polonica, A Lesnictwo (24): 111-130

A method is developed for determining the age of (a) technical, (b) economic, (c) quantitative and (d) natural maturity of Polish stands according to site class, quality class and the timber assortments required. The age of (a) was 75-140 yr, with (b) significantly higher, generally at least 130 yr; (c) was 85-140 yr depending on site class and (d) was estimated at 160 yr.

The effect was studied of gravity cable logging or powered cable logging (using a LKT 80 winch) on natural regeneration and damage to remaining trees in a pure beech [Fagus sylvatica] stand in Slovakia that had been strip felled.
