Abstract

This publication outlines the cultural operations of pruning, fertilizing, and thinning that can greatly enhance the timber value of a plantation. This summary is based on the findings of many individuals. While there are alternatives to many of the recommended practices and differences of opinion existing among professionals, our purpose is to give the landowner a set of general guidelines that have provided good results under a broad range of circumstances.
