Description

From the text (p.15) ... 'I promised I would try to define silviculture, but maybe we need reminding again that 'because of the broad differences in climate, physiography, forest vegetation, method of past treatment, natural and introduced animals, insects, and disease and in economic conditions, a multitude of silvicultural problems exist in the United States' (Westveld 1935). No single cutting method or silvicultural system will solve them all, but uneven-aged management may solve some of them. That is what we are here to talk about.'
