The principles of cultivating beech stands

Forst und Holzwirt 42(5): 107-111

The principles of cultivating beech stands

A detailed exposition is presented of the management of beech (Fagus sylvatica) in Bavaria, with the overall aim of improving the value of the material produced. A tabular management summary is given showing the targets, principles, silvicultural measures, and work techniques in cleanings, early thinnings and late thinnings.
