Abstract

In deferment harvest, two distinct age classes are created and the residual trees remain after establishment of the second cohort. The 20- or 25-year preliminary results from four deferment areas are described. For each area, volume and growth in the residual trees and new cohort, and structure and composition of the new cohort are presented. We also address whether the deferment harvest accomplished regeneration goals of establishing species that range from shade intolerant to tolerant.
