This 8-page guide to wood lot management presents the intricacies of managing a northern hardwood forest to produce forest products, create aesthetic appeal, provide wildlife habitat, or accomplish all three goals simultaneously. Among the strategies discussed are release thinning to free up crop trees, commercial thinning to produce immediate profit, and selective shelterwood cutting to accomplish long-term goals (8 pages; 1994).
