Abstract: Changes in species composition and possible associated changes in forest productivity after timber harvesting have important implications with respect to forest management options for landowners and for regional wood using industries. To better understand partial harvesting and its impacts, a study employing three different partial cutting practices, with monitoring of unmanaged reference stands, was initiated in 1951 and continues to date on the Fernow Experimental Forest in West Virginia.
