Commercial thinning in red pine plantations


Commercial thinning in red pine plantations



Jour Forestry 46(2): 110-114



Plantations of red pine in the Northeast must be thinned early and quite heavily to maintain rapid growth. The method successfully used on the Luther Forest in Saratoga County, N. Y. is described. Thinning removes 40-45%, by vol. and number, in a highly mechanized operation. The woods crew of 7 men covers an acre a day and produces 9-11 cords. The 7-man skidding and loading crew handles a flatcar load (I7 1/2-18 1/2 cords) a day. Trees cut are co-dominants and intermediates, 5-9 in. on the butt, with 16-26 ft. of merchantable length. The material is now being used for tight cooperage, but would be suitable for boxboards or for less exacting uses.
